Introduction: Retro Electric Tea Lamp
A friend asked me to enlighten the peninsula (table) of its cuisine.
I saw these tea lamps in a supermarket.
I decided to buy them and give them a new and different life! :)

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: What You Need:
- Tea Lamp
- Lamp Holder
- Sheet metal Cutter
- Hole Saw
- Few feet of Chain
Step 2: Light From the Bottom
I opened the lamp and removed the iron box of candles
I used the hole saw to drill a hole in the bottom of the lamp.
Step 3: Remove the Ring
I removed the top and the ring with a screwdriver and I cut for projecting parts with sheet cutter.
Step 4: Lamp Holder
I plugged in the lamp holder and I screwed its plastic ring and I shook with force.
I reassembled the top to the bottom and I did a test:
It works !!!! ;)
Step 5: The Chain
Before attaching the lights to the ceiling,
I tied a piece of string to the cable in the cup which hides the wires and I did go through the hole bottom.
Below, I used the wire to stop the first link in the chain (which must be twisted along the electrical cord to the lamp).
Step 6: At the End...
I attached the lights to the ceiling and I tried them!
Step 7: Si Può Fareeeeeeeee!!!!
