We moved to our new apartment and to fill our time and to fill the apartment with light, we started making lamps.
Step 1: Lamp 1
I have not taken many photos of the making but I will try to give a general idea.
Lamp 1 is made of Dollar Tree foam board. I cut foam board in shape and my wife painted it. We cut out flowers and other patterns. I cut ladder like pattern on one edge of lamp and pasted colored packing paper strips on each edge.
Step 2: Lamp 2
Again got a Dollar Tree popcorn bowl and painted a Tiffany lamp like pattern with glass colors. Then using a hot skewer drilled a hole in bottom of the bowl to pass wire for the lamp.
Step 3: Lamp 3
This is a recycled juice bottle. This was 15 minutes work. I just cut off the bottom of the juice bottle and wife painted patterns on it using acrylic colors. It has a CFL in it to light it.
