In this Instructable I will show you how to make a bridge shape lamp out of popsicle sticks and table tennis.

Step 1: Materials

Glue Gun*1, Popsicle Sticks *200, LED Lights with USB Plug *1, Plastic Glue*4, Table Tennis Ball*1

Step 2: Preheat Glue Gun

Turn the glue gun on and preheat it. Make sure the plastic glue is soft enough and squeeze it out gently when needed.

Step 3: Build a Quarter of Bridge Circle

Place a stick at first, align 9 sticks based on the first stick, then build other sticks with glue following the pictures.

Step 4: Make Bridge for Lamp

1. After finishing a quarter of the bridge circle, build another quarter in the same way.

2. Combine the two quarters together and fill the remaining bottom with sticks so that the bottom is relatively flat.

Step 5: Stick LED Lights and Table Tennis

1. Stick the LED lights above the middle of the sticks and fix the USB cable at the groove formed by the stick.

2. Cut the table tennis ball into two halfspheres, secure a halfsphere above the LED lights by glue.

Step 6: Assemble All Parts Together

Lastly fix the lights onto the base of the bridge and finish all other parts, now you’ve created your own bridge lamp!
