Picture of Halloween Lamps You Can Make!
To get into the halloween spirt, ooooooohhhhhhh, I decided to make some decorative lamps for the holiday.  These were easy to make, and virtually free, except for the lights.  I bought those after christmas last year, and they were on sale at walmart for $1.00  for a string of 20!  I bought 5 or 6, but wish I had got lots more at that price.  The key to the project is that the lights are low voltage, low amperage, do not get hot and are easy to handle.  Let's get started. 

Step 1: Gather The Materials and Tools

Most of the tools and supplies are shown in this step.  Orange paper, black cardstock, acrylic paints, cutting tools, straight edge, etc.   And of course the lights. These are regular christmas tree lights, found in any dept. or craft store.

Oh wow!  Not only a project I can do, but I probably have all of the materials on hand.  I might be able to get it done by Halloween.  Great tutorial!  Thanks!

Great instructions! I'm going to give it a try. This technique can be used for all sorts of holidays and just for kicks.

Thanks, ShadowGirl:  You're right, the possibilities are endless. I'm thinking globes for xmas, hearts for valentines, turkey for thanksgiving, etc.  Make them larger or small, paint or use colored paper, and so on.  good luck. Cman

What a great idea! The possibilities are so wonderful too, I haveChristmas lights in a jar, around a statue and a sculpture but this ismuch better because all you see is the image.
