As i was browsing the internet to find some more ideas for decorating our home i found this great idea for making a japanese lamp using very simple and cheap materials. Here’s a great tutorial from instructables.com. And here’s the lamp we created.

We used red wood paint and the base of the lamp is cardboard. We just have to get the lid a little trimmed!

 Remember that japanese style lamp i had made?

 You can forget it! It had a small accident! It is now broken! I wanted from a while now to make a new one and the time came! I searched around the house for inspiration! And i found it in two Ikea candle holders.

 I used the tall one as the base and the round one as the lamp hat. I started by gluing them together with hot glue.

 I used about 4 meters of red satin ribbon, 4cm wide, and about 1 meter of red lace, also 4cm wide. I started weaving the ribbon through the lamp hat. I used the same lamp shower i had in the japanese lamp and placed in the round candle holder.

 I used white glue to secure the ribbons and the lace.  And of course i loved it!

 I must do something to hide the black cord! It emits a great warm light. And it looks really luxurious! The satin does all the job!

I finally made it! I have been wanting to make a lamp for our hallway. I found a beautiful one made with plastic spoons at guiademanualidades. The tutorial is in Spanish but the photos are great and it’s an easy project which requires patience! I gathered my materials and started going. I used a 10L plastic bottle, hot glue, about 270 spoons and….feathers!

There was only one small problem. My bottle, unlike the one at guiademanualidades, did not have parallel lines on it but a spiral, so some of the spoons are a little more pointy then the others but they are lost  in the chaos of the lamp. I thought at first to cover the bottle with white paper but changed my mind because i believed that it would minimize the light.

So i started by cutting the bottom of the bottle and then i begun gluing the spoons. I broke the handle of them and kept just the curvy part. Since there where no parallel lines on the bottle the first line was not that straightened so i unglued the spoons and glued them more carefully the second time. I placed my lamp on a miniature of the Eiffel Tower that we have at home so that it was about at my height .

I glued 18 rows with 15 spoons at each one. When i finally made it to the top the curve of the bottle was kind of  inconvenient for me to glue the rest of the spoons. I glued and unglued them 2 or 3 times in different ways, but i was not happy with the result. I had two options : to cut the top part of the bottle or to find something else to use there. And then it came to me : feathers!

I was ready to finish my project! I glued the feathers on the lamp and i was finally and officially over with it!

Kind of funny. Isn’t it? I love it! It was time the man of the house took some action and hang it!
