Step 1: Materials
For this project i used
1. two empty bottles o f milk (one big and one smaller one),
2. a lamp
3. some concrete with water and sand
4. a wire
5. one smallpiece of 5 cm polysterine.
Step 2: Making the Mold
For the mold, i used the two empty bottles of milk.
First of all , i cut the bottoms of them both.
Then I tried to put the one inside the other, so there will be a gap about 2 to 3 cm everywhere.
I used plastic bottles of the same company, so the shapes of the big and the small bottle are almost the same.
After that, i mixed the concrete with water and sand, and put the mixture inside my mold.
I left the concrete there for one day, in order to be strong enough, so i could cut the plastic bottles.
Step 3: Put Some Light
After the mixture was strong enough, i removed the two bottles and i made a hole in the back of lampshade as shown in the picture.
After that i put the wire through the hole, and attached it to the lamp.
In order to keep the lamp stable inside the concrete lampshade, i attached to it a piece of polysterine as you can see.
Step 4: Hang It!!
After that the lampshade is ready, the next step is to choose some nice place that you need light and hang it
