Intro: Classy Cylindrcal Paper Lamp
easy to make ,elegant, classy lamp.
Things you will need
-Construction paper (the color you want your lamp to be,i chose black)
-Light fixture (for the base)
You can use this lamp as a small table lamp or a large floor lamp.
Cut the construction paper into a rectangle
if you want to make a floor lamp.you will have to make a larger rectangle, the length being the height of your lamp and the width being the base of your lamp( which will be formed into a circular base)
for a floor lamp you have to cut out a really large rectangle
for a table lamp you will need a small rectangle...an A4 size will do just fine
now, cut tracing paper of equal proprtions to the construction paper rectangle,and keep aside
Step 3: Step 3
Lay the construction paper on a hard surface and cut out any design you like.
Use templates if you like :)
After the design has been cut out on the construction paper, glue the tracing paper neatly behind the construction paper with the pvc glue. put aside to dry
gently shape your construction paper into a cylindrical shape by gluing the two lengths of the rectangle together.i start by stippling the two ends then slowly gluing them with a glue gun,the staples keep the cylinder stable (not open up)
Step 6: Last Step
all you have to do is fix the light fixture ( a bulb) below the lamp,and you are done :)
you can get a light fixture base made by your local carpenter,i usually make my own.
