What makes these light fixtures cordless? If you haven't used wireless LED puck lights, you are going to fall in love with this tutorial. No regular light bulbs needed. These basket pendant lights are lightweight and use batteries, so no need for a cord or outlet. The lights we used come with a remote as well. No electrician needed, folks. Brilliant!

Things You'll Need

Step 1: Prep basket.

Use scissors or wire cutters to remove the handles from the baskets. Some are only attached by the basket material and others have wire.
