Step 1: Needed Materials
List of ingredients:
Hot glue sticks
Hot glue gun
Small Led lamp
Step 2: Cut the Hot Glue Sticks
Cut the glue sticks into different lengths. Make them pointy and continue with cutting the sides in a way they start to look like a hexagon bar.
Step 3: Dip the Crystals in Hot Water
use a skewer to hold the crystals and dip them into hot water. Dip for a few seconds and see if the faces got more smooth and shiny like glass. Not to long in the water or your edges become blurry. The water needs to be fresh from the kettle, because the temperature should be high to make the faces melt a little.
Step 4: Hot Glue the Crystals on Your Lamp
Use your hot glue gun to mount the crystals on your lamp. Use some leftover glue sticks to decorate the edges with small shards.
Step 5: Enjoy!
Turn of the light and enjoy your showpiece illuminated :)
