I love pendant lamps, this is the lamp I usually make for special occasions like Diwali (in India), but I thought it is really more than that and came up with this cool idea of using it as a night pendant lamp or just pendant lamp.

It is simple and easy, but a little bit time consuming if you apply old school methods (unless you have a cutting tool like Silhouette or at least a compass cutter like tool).

It can also be made by kids under supervision. I named this lamp as TLC (Tender, Love & Care) Pendant lamp, because I have used some lovely words to decorate this lamp which are used to communicate such lovely expressions.

Lets get started.

Step 1: Stuff that you will need

You will need following material to make this lamp
  1. A large Card sheet or drawing sheet (I used ivory or off-white color)
  2. A measurement scale or ruler
  3. Elmer's glue or similar or Fevicol (in india), with pointed nozzle..
  4. A compass cutter
  5. A craft scissor
  6. Pencil
  7. A stapler
  9. A paper cutter
  10. A power cord with bulb holder
  11. A 5 watt CFL or 1 watt LED
  12. Tracing sheet (I used A4 size but it doesn't matter)
  13. Some knowledge about Microsoft Word and how to print document (OPTIONAL If you take my attached template for print out at Office Depot or similar place).
  14. Patience, if will help you finish the stuff faster :-)

Wonderful way of explaining the entire procedure leaves no doubt at all. Will surely try this. Thank you
<p>I am so glad to know this :). Thank you so much :)</p>
WOW Very Cool............&lt;3..^_^
Thanks You :)
This is awesome - I really like the lamps!
Its magical n lovely pendant!! Very pretty:-)
Wow, these are really pretty! I think it would be fun to make some myself, but I'm having a hard time finding 1 watt bulbs (or a socket for them). Where did you get yours? Do you think it would work if I took the small LEDs out of a flashlight?
1 watt LED bulbs are somewhat hard to find, I actually used a 1 watt LED with a LED driver so that I can connect it to power. You can use 5 watt CFL they work well too. <br>Thanks for stopping by.
OMG.......Fantastic work with mind game...........!!! how much time it will take to complete 1 set of Lamp ?? <br>
Thank Anubhav :)<br>It usually takes 3-4 hours. but if you have right tools like compass cutter, it can be completed in 2 hours.
This is very cool! I love the positive kind words for the pendant. This would be great for any celebration. Thank you! <br>Jan
I am so glad that you noticed and liked the Idea. Those words really made a big difference from my original version. <br>Thank you so much.
