Love the look of sconce lighting, but not the hassle or cost of wiring them?
Well, you’re in luck! I’m excited to shed light on how you can easily install a sconce light WITHOUT any wiring by using a lighting puck!
Sconce light fixtures are a beautiful way to add style and light to different areas in your home! We’ve actually installed several over the years, and I love the personality and interest they give to every space they’re in.
It will take less than 15 minutes to install a sconce light thanks to this lighting hack!
My son desperately needed a reading light, and although he did have a little plug-in clip on one for the bottom bunk he sleeps in, I was looking for a solution where I couldn’t see hanging wires. I first saw this faux lighting hack on fancyfarmgirls.com, and I was completely inspired to try it on my own!
Here’s what I used:
Pick up whichever sconce fits your style and budget – or even consider using one from a thrift store and spray painting it! I found an inexpensive outdoor sconce at Lowe’s, and I also picked up these wireless remote puck lights for convenience. In fact, my lights are indoor/outdoor so you can even take your new lighting outside – just make sure the ones you purchase are also indoor/outdoor.
To easily attach the puck light to the fixture, I used some mounting tape, which has worked out well for us!
Easiest install ever. 🙌
All we did was put batteries inside the puck light, mount the puck light to the fixture using mounting tape, and hung the fixture onto the wall as you normally would. I used the bracket and screws the fixture came with – only without an electrical box and wires! 😱

I love this light so much! 😍
My son can either just touch it to turn it on or off or use the remote! The bottom of the puck light is attached to the fixture, so I can just twist the top half off to change the batteries.
I think this is such a brilliant idea that truly does work, looks amazing, and takes very little time to accomplish!
