I was at Ikea a few days ago looking for a lamp to fit my bedroom motif. I couldn’t find anything I liked but I did find some cool candle lanterns and I knew they would make a great project. Continuing on my journey I happened upon a hanging lamp base that seemed like it would fit into the lantern perfectly. I grabbed the lantern, the lamp cord, and the corresponding light bulb and set to work on a new project.
Step 1: Ingredients
For this Hack you will need.
1. Rotera candle lantern
2. Hemma hanging lamp base
3. Ikea size light bulbs (they come in a two pack)
4. In line lamp switch (I got this from the hardware store)
5. Small size wire nut 16 – 22 (also from the hardware store)
Also it is handy to have these tools at hand
Rotary grinding tool
Now lets get to it!
Step 2: Separate the top of the lantern from the base
Step 3: Grind it open
Step 4: Wiring
(I know that when attaching a wire it should always wrap clockwise around the screw, I fixed the wire after I took the picture.)
Step 5: All together now
Great work and thanks for visiting.
