Introduction: DIY Heat Lamp

Hii everyone. This is my first ever instructable.
In this instructable, I am going to tell you how to make a lamp that radiates heat while you work under its light. It also looks like a decoration during daytime. It is also a reuse of papers. Seems interesting?? Let's get started.


Some old papers.
Glue, scissors.
Colour. Choose a colour that generally allows light to pass through it.
A power source. I have used a mobile charger.
A tungsten bulb with some conducting wires. You can switch to LED's in case you don't need the heat.

Step 1: 3. Drawing...

Draw the pattern shown in the image all over the paper.

Step 2: 5. Connecting It Up...

Fix all the patterns into one another as shown in the image. Don't forget to hang the bulb or led inside the lamp.

Step 3: 1. Sticking the Papers...

Take a couple of papers and stick them back to back thoroughly using glue. You can use a stiff coloured paper and skip this step. Make sure you use the right amount of glue. So now you have a stiffer paper.

Step 4: 2. Colouring the Paper...

Take suitable colour and paint a side of the paper. I have added a bit of glue to the colour so that it sticks firmly and looks bold.
Leave it to dry.

Step 5: 4. Cutting the Pattern...

Cut the pattern accordingly as the curves would remain outside adding to your decoration. Also make a cut in each of the petals as shown in the image.

Step 6: 6. Hooking It Up....

Hook up the wires to the power source.
My phone camera has problems with low light conditions, but it really looks great.
