Introduction: Cups of Light

Cups of light is a very beautiful lamp made out of paper cups and few extras.

Material needed:

1) LED String Light (with 72 individual LED's in this case)

2) Therefore 72 paper cups.

3) Foam board for frame purpose.

4) Spray paint.

Step 1:

Draw and cut the template on the foam board.

Cover the template with a fabric/leatherette/ or spray paint.

Step 2: Complete This Step Before Covering the Template in Leatherette.

Spray paint the inside of all paper cups preferably with silver color because it is most reflective color for light.

Once the paint is dried, insert all the cups in the foam board template. If the paper cups are loose, paste them using hot glue or adhesive.

Poke a hole at the bottom of each paper cup.

Step 3:

Starting assembling the LED light by passing each LED individually in each cups. That's why I took 72 cups because there were 72 LED's in my LED string light.

If the LED is loose, paste it using glue or adhesive.

Step 4:

Close the template in cylindrical shape and cover it from top and bottom. Either hang it from an arrangement from top or place it on a tripod or stand through an arrangement at the bottom.

Step 5:
