Colorful Straw Lamp Answered

Have about 1500 colorful straws lying around after your last party? Of course you do! Instead of tossing them out you can clean them up and make this technicolor lamp that a kid would love.

The directions are pretty helpful, but could use some process shots. So if anyone's looking for an Instructable idea, here you go.

That looks tight, you should make an actual Instructable on how to make it though.

Actually, no.

A similar thread about a lamp spawned at least three Instructables, none of them by the creator of the original lamps.

Many of the projects here are DIY versions of "real" products.

oh, if you look at the license you have to at least think that you are the original creator, even though nobody actually cares because they don't know if you knew or not

I bought metal slurpee straws from 711 just so i never accumulate this many wasted plastic straws in my life. So unfortunately, you guys will never see me make this into an instructable.
