INSTRUCTIONS: Take an object that is intended as decorative and turn it into something functional.

Dollar Store decorations get no love from me. And usually with good reason. They are some of the strangest and most random decorations out there. So for this task, I went to a Dollar Tree in search of a decoration. There were many little statues to choose from and in the end, it came down to a horse or a strange mannequin head. The horse actually looks more like a toy than a decoration so I went with the head. I couldn't imagine this had any functional purpose. Time for it's new life!

Over a year ago, the string that turned on the light in my front closet broke off. Instead of just grabbing a chair and tying on some new string, I have resorted to using the hall light to see into the closet. This did not work well at all. And then the hall light burnt out. And I can't reach it to change it.

Here's where the decoration comes in! Add a pretty ribbon and presto, a perfectly sized and shaped light pull.

I needed a chair and a poof to reach the light socket.

It actually feels really good when I pull on it. It fits perfectly in my palm. Who would have guessed. I will definitely be leaving this new and improved light pull for the next tenant whenever I move out.

I could have tied the pink ribbon around her neck, but that's just gross. Instead, I drilled a hole in her head...

So high...

Sad light socket that hasn't been turned on in over a year.


Ooh, shiny.

So happy and bright!

This just feels right.

Trepanning: less gross than hanging. Yup.
