Step 1: Cut a Piece of a Lego Baseplate
Cut a long piece from your Baseplate with a cutter. 1/3 of this piece will be used to build the lamp while 2/3 will be positioned under the books to make everything more stable (in my picture it is 25 cm (10'') long x 12 cm (4,72") height).
It is very easy to cut a Baseplate:
- create a cutting mark (use a ruler to go straight)
- bend the baseplate in opposite directions until it breakes
Step 2: Create a Lego Scene on One Side of the Baseplate
On one side of the baseplate create a scene with your favourite lego pieces. This scene will be visible from windows when the lamp is turned on.
I created my secret science lab
Step 3: Build Walls Around Your Scene
Now start building your house/lamp and add windows and doors
Be sure that the scene is visible from doors and windows
Step 4: Close Your Lamp
Close your scene inside walls and put a few christmas lights on the roof
Hide threads in the roof between pieces and the lamp is completed!
