Introduction: DIY Paper Plates Lamp: Making Lamp Using Paper Plates

Hi, Guys I made this lamp using paper plates. It's awesome. It's very easy quick also very low cost and super fun. I saw this square paper plate in Dollar Tree. Then I got the idea of making the lamp. I really love the final look of the lamp. I am very excited to share with you. And I am going to make another project using this plate. So, don't forget to watch my other project too. Here is the link of paper plate photo frame:

2) Wax paper

3) Construction paper

4) Pompom

5) Black 3D fabric color

6) Acrylic color


8) Hot glue

Step 1: Making Lamp:

Picture of Making Lamp:

For making this lamp you need 6 plates. First, take 4 paper plates and then 4x4 inch square cut in the middle of the plate. Then take 5x5inch wax paper and stick to the back of the plate. Then I decorate the plate as 4 seasons. First, I painted the plate using the acrylic color. I used construction paper to decorate the plate. For trees, leaves, apple, flower, pumpkin I used construction paper, for snowman I used pompom, for making snow I used cotton balls.

Step 2: Finishing:

When you are done decorating, then take another plate for the base of the lamp and then stick all 4 plates to the 4 side of the plate. It will look like a cube, and out Battery-Operated LED Tealight Candles inside, Then, take another plate with wax paper in the middle. And cover the cube with it. And you are done, your paper plate lamp is ready now.
