Introduction: Decorative Mushroom Lights

How to make indoor mushroom lights in easy way.

Supplies

Material: clear pvc sheet 0.5 mm, artificial plastic eggs, flexible plastic pipe, aluminum wire, super glue, 1 watt white led 3.2 volt (4 pieces) ,12 volt power supply, acrylic white paint, cellophane sheet yellow, drill machine

Step 1: Making Mushrooms

Buy large size artificial eggs from art and craft shop, cut into halves and smooth it with the help of sand paper

Step 2: Making Mushroom Stems

I have used flexible plastic pipe (0.5 inches) to make the mushroom stems.Insert aluminium ( curving bending stem shape) and electrical wires in pipe and fix with super glue.

Step 3: Base

Find any natural and beautiful wooden piece for mushroom base. Drill some holes on the wood log and fix the mushroom in the holes.Connect the wires with Electric supply.Set the position of mushroom in their natural way.

Place this night lamp in your bedroom and enjoy it.

    Is there a step missing here?? How do the stems attach to the egg tops? And how do the led’s work in to it? Need more info as it’s a cool project but can’t do it as it stands.

    Cut out circle from clear PVC Sheet. Make a hole in the circle according to the diameter of the pipe and pass the pipe through the center. Now fix the PVC circle with the mushroom cap with super glue. For the electrical section i have used 1 watt white LED 3.2 volts for each mushroom and 12 volts power supply.

    I like the idea, but the instructions and parts list are not complete.Step 2 says to "Insert aluminum..." but this "aluminum" isn't in the parts list. I'd guess it's thin aluminum pipe, to stiffen the plastic pipe, but then why use the plastic pipe? There is no mention of what to use for the "electric supply" mentioned in step 3.

    Once I figure out what to use for the aluminum and power, I think I might make this.

    I have used the aluminium wire to provide the shape to the plastic pipe to give natural mushroom stem look. I have inserted both the electrical wire and aluminium wire in the plastic pipe, I have liked your idea too. You can use aluminium pipe and can pass electrical wire through it. For the electrical section i have used 1 watt white LED 3.2 volts for each mushroom and 12 volts power supply.

    Those eggs really do make great mushroom caps. I love the finished look of the lamp :)
