Step 1: Materials Needed

  • Ball (it can be a plastic,wooden which can drill easily)
  • Support stand
  • Base for support
  • Bulb (any type /any watts )
  • Support part for ball
  • Bulb holder
  • Drill
  • Wires/plugs
  • Brush/paint (optional)

Step 2: Lamp Designing

Picture of Lamp Designing

Take out the plain ball and draw your own designs (like flowers, logos,captions,names...) on it, then drill holes threw the design and paint it if you want.

Step 3: Painting And Assembling

Find appropriate parts for the support/stand and assemble them ,then paint it if you want so

Step 4: Finished pics and video

Got awesome result ,by the way i had expected projected dots but its bit different from it any way it looks cool

Try with different bulbs for more effects

Wow! I'm blown away by the effect! That is incredible! How did you get the drilled holes so perfect?

tominjose (author)  gravityisweak11 months ago

Thanks, it took me about 2 days to drill all holes .First i marked all spots to be drilled using a marker then i drilled holes on those marked parts and some polishing its Done!!

Try to use high rpm drill

The reason you did not get dots is that you are getting a projection of your light source. You are showing a clear bulb as your light source so you are seeing the filament being projected through each of the holes. The closer you get to a point light source the closer you will get to a dot. Also the farther the light source is from the hole the smaller the projected image will be. If you use more than one light source and at different distances from the holes, as a bunch of Christmas lights, you will have different size projections for each light source. I would try using LED lights and tie them into a tight bundle, trying to make as much of a ball shape as possible, in the center of the ball.

If you were to put Christmas lights in there (especially the programable flashing type), I'd bet the colors and effects would be amazing.
