I've been dreaming about making new lamps for a while, but my home is so full of lamps now that I kept myself from making another one...but the problem is that once you get addicted to making lamps, you can hardly stop!
So here I am with a new lamp!
I decided to use a fun technique to fuse plastic bags that I recently learned here: Fusing Plastic Bags- the eclipse way
I thought it was really interesting and I wanted to try it to make a lampshade.
What's fun about this lampshade is that you can use any picture you like, even one that you took!
And why not, even your own silhouette!! :D
One of the greatest (yet craziest) ideas that came to my mind is to make a whole series of lamps like this one, using different pictures, to tell a story...
I can't do this now but let me know how it turns out if you try it! :)
I always recommend using LED light bulbs or at least low-energy light bulbs, especially the cold light ones. So, be careful!
Step 1: What you need
- white plastic bags (and a black one if you prefer - see Step 2)
- black acrylic paint
- cotton thread
- hot glue
- double sided tape
- parchment paper
- bulb and bulb holder
