Create some mood lighting with this novelty flamingo lamp!

Step 1: Collect Your Supplies

I had a floor lamp that I never used and that ended up being the base for this project.

Here is a complete list of supplies you'll need:

Pink flamingo

Utility knife

Pink spray paint

Aluminum can

Small flexible LED lamp (IKEA's Jansjo works well)

Tin snips

E6000 adhesive

Spring clamps



Red zipties

Tree Branch the same width as your floor lamp pole

Pink smoothie straw


Pink paint

Masking tape

<p>Fun project! This has me wondering whether I could do something similar with those solar powered yard luminaries...</p><p>Has the plastic and E-6000 in the head area held up so far? My firefighter dad would be nervous that the hot light would be a problem so close to the plastic.</p>
<p>Thanks. Solar powered would be awesome. The adhesive has held up but I don't think it could take a lot of abuse. I left the light on for a few hours to test it and the LED light doesn't get hot. I know what you mean about lights being next to stuff. I get paranoid and definitely a regular bulb would spell trouble. </p>
<p>Hahaha the glowing head looks great! </p>
<p>Thank you! It is a super fun room accessory. </p>
