Recycled Lamp From Scrap Hangers.




Introduction: Recycled Lamp From Scrap Hangers.

Hi there friends!!

From some time, I am looking to buy a beautiful lamp for my room but won't be able to afford their high prices :P

So, here I am presenting you a very beautiful lamp for your room decor which is made entirely from such material which we usually don't pay attention and put in trash. And that is "HANGER". :D. So without spending much money I made this beautiful lamp.

I always thought what to do with so many hangers hanged in my wardrobe, so here comes their utilization step by step for you guys.

Step 1: Material Needed:-

-- hangers of similar shape (for good shape preferably minimum 14) (Amazon: Hangers)

-- scissors /cutter (Amazon: scissors) / (Amazon: cutter)

-- candlestick and matchbox (Amazon: candle)

-- some tool for doing hole in hanger. I am using my broker screwdriver for doing the same. You can use knife also. (Amazon: knife)

-- wire (Amazon: wire)

-- paint colors as per your choice. preferably acrylic colors.(Amazon: colors)

-- paint brush (Amazon: paintBrush)

-- 1 old CD

-- bulb holder with wire of sufficient length to hang it.(Amazon: holder)

-- bulb (advised to use low wattage bulb eg LED BULB, as in my intractable I am using plastic hangers) (Amazon: LEDbulb)

Step 2: Cut the Unnecessary Round Shape From All Hangers.

Light up your candle. Slightly heat up your cutter as shown in picture.

And, taking one hanger at a time, cut down the round shape as shown in picture.

Repeat the above step for all the hangers, and finally we will be having our required shaped hangers with us as shown in picture.

Step 3: Make a Hole at the End of Each Hanger.

Slightly heat up your screwdriver or knife using candle as shown and considering round shape towards inside as shown in picture, make a hole on upper side edge of hanger using your heated screwdriver or knife as shown.

Repeat the same for all the hangers and we will be having this with us for all the hangers.

Step 4: Color Your Hangers.

After making holes color all the hangers with your desired color as shown.
Let the color dry properly.

Step 5: Tie Up All the Hangers With Wire and Make CD Adjustment for Bulb Holder.

Now take your wire and one by one take this wire through the holes of all the hangers as shown.

Now taking both the ends of your wire (near the first and last hanger in wire), tie up the wire in CIRCLE shape taking round shape of hangers inwards as shown.

Properly tie up the ends of the wire.

Now, do the present set of tied hangers (to be lamp) upside down for making the adjustment for CD.

Now, take the CD and try to set the hanger hooks onto the CD round edge as shown.
Now, apply a thick layer of fevicol between this hanger hook and CD edge as shown so as to paste it at fix point on CD.
Repeat it for all the hangers as shown.

As shown in the figure, place it on some long tube ( i m using water bottle with flat cap) and let the fevicol dries properly.

Now, after it gets dried up, cut the rest of the unused wire as shown.

Now I am having this at the end of this step.

Step 6: Adjust the Bulb Holder and ITS DONE!!

Now at this final step of our lamp making, pass the wire of bulb holder through the CD hole and upper hole between the created shape of hangers as shown.

The holder will get stuck at the end and after inserting a bulb, TA-DA!! here's our beautiful lamp using just from few scrap hangers.
