Lamps Ahoy!!




We moved to our new apartment and to fill our time and to fill the apartment with light, we started making lamps.

Step 1: Lamp 1

I have not taken many photos of the making but I will try to give a general idea.

Lamp 1 is made of Dollar Tree foam board. I cut foam board in shape and my wife painted it. We cut out flowers and other patterns. I cut ladder like pattern on one edge of lamp and pasted colored packing paper strips on each edge.

Step 2: Lamp 2

Again got a Dollar Tree popcorn bowl and painted a Tiffany lamp like pattern with glass colors. Then using a hot skewer drilled a hole in bottom of the bowl to pass wire for the lamp.

Step 3: Lamp 3

This is a recycled juice bottle. This was 15 minutes work. I just cut off the bottom of the juice bottle and wife painted patterns on it using acrylic colors. It has a CFL in it to light it.

    They all turned out so nice it's hard to believe they're not "real" lamps. Well done on the upcycling and for using unseen potential. Thank for sharing!
