Step 1: The Idea
so i got this great idea while going thru martha stewarts book of crafts.very easy to make dahlia like pompoms that hang from the ceiling giving the room a nice cheery effect.i decided to modify that very pompom into a lamp pom pom.
Step 2: The Modification
To bring the lamp in shape i needed an internal sturdy shell ,which would be translucent for light to pass thru.
I decided to make a conventional round paper lamp shell using pvc glue , paper and a baloon
instructions for the same in the link below
After this is made and dried,punch in evenly spaced holes in the shell to make space and insert the tissue paper
cut a square tissue paper into half's and fold each half's into separate fan shaped cones,as in the Martha Stewart tutorial.
Now insert the pointed parts of the tissue cones into each holes,gradually covering all holes.
Open up the tissue cones from the out side to give a bloomed out effect
Step 3: Add Light
add a light source to the lamp and hang it :D
you can add colors to your lamp by either dying tissue papers to the color you require, or just use crepe paper instead,enjoy your new lamp!!
