Intro: DIY UFO Lamp
This is a UFO lamp which uses simple household items!
It takes only 10-15 minutes to make and serves as a showpiece, a nightlight as well as a normal lamp!
So, what are you waiting for! Let's get started!
Step 1: Materials
All you need is :
A small torch or a superbright led (with a battery)
A tall plastic glass (I stuck 2 of them back to back)
2 paper/plastic plates
Clay (for decorations)
Step 2: Fitting the Torch
Trace around the torch with a marker. Then cut out the hole. The torch should fit snug in there.
The torch I used had 6 leds in it making it really bright.
You can also use a suprbright led connected to battery.
Step 3: Painting and Decorating
Now it's time to paint!
I mixed white and black acrylic paint to make a gray tone.
You can also spray paint it in silver, reducing the effort. After it dried, I used the marker and made some simple decorations on it. You can decorate it in any way you want.
Step 4: Assembling the Lamp
I used Hefty's interlocking plates, which snapped shut together when pressed against each other. You can also glue the plates together. The reason I used these plates was because I could easily replace the battery of the torch if it died out.
Next, I took the glass and lined the edge with glue.
Then, I put the UFO on top and left it to dry.
I also I added some simple decorations.
I cut out a circle of cardboard and took a Lego minifigure (sorry Robin :P) and stuck him on the cardboard.
You can also make a clay animal, add some grass and make other crazy sorts of decorations.
Step 5: Finished!
All you have to do is turn on the light, and you're done!
Clearly, Robin was shocked because he was going to be abducted by a UFO :P
