Lamp DIY

11/06/2013

I am in the process of updating the girls' room, and have found these cute DIY's I thought we could do together:

Products used (for all 3 lamps) are:

Ricepaper lamps,
Glue,
Paint, 
Fabric/paper pieces cut in a chosen shape,
Spray-paint,
Scissors,
and a coloured cord to make it fun!

You make the patterns(or stick the fabric/paper) evenly on the lamps, leave to dry and then hang and enjoy. What do you think? Isn't this fun. Happy day - we still have the sunshine, so I'm basking in it, as they say the clouds are rolling in from Thursday:)

  3. They're brilliant and I like both tutorials, I guess it would just depend on how each one fits into a room. Lovely idea :-)

  5. Love these ideas very much. I've also seen an artichoke style lamp made of a plastic bottle and plastic spoons - it was also brilliant. x
