DIY Coffee Filter Light Pendant

I was looking for a fun pendant to hang from the ceiling going down the stairs to my basement and I found a coffee filter pendant on-line I could make. I purchased an 18" paper lantern and glued on about 400 filters with a hot glue gun.  Very simple, just time consuming.
Below are my progress photos-

One of the kids pinched each filter for me, making it look like a flower, than I'd glue it on, making this go by quicker!

I use a compact fluorescent, 60w

 I had a recessed down light, but was able to convert it to a pendant by just adding a conversion kit at Lowe's, no need to hire an electrician.
