Create a Lamp out of Spoons!

For those who don’t mind getting crafty every once in awhile, NYMM has a simple project to make your own lamp. A light fixture can add a lot to a room, as it brings light and a bit of style. This DIY lamp looks like something you would spend a lot of money on, but it is actually quite cheap and easy to make! For more ways to complete this craft, check out Handimania.

1. Supplies

You should be able to find many of the things you need for this project around your house. You’ll need a glue gun, a sharp knife, pliers, plastic spoons, a lamp with a cable, and a big plastic bottle. Shapes and sizes of the bottle can vary, but bigger is definitely better for this project.

2. Getting Started

To begin, turn on your glue gun and make sure it is ready to go. Next, you will need to cut the handles off of all of the plastic spoons. Then, you will use your knife to cut a big hole in the bottom of the plastic bottle.

Using your hot glue, you can begin to glue the spoons around the bottom of the bottle. Make sure they overlap a bit so that none of the bottle is visible. Once you have finished the first row, you will continue the pattern up the entire bottle. As you make your rows, be sure to overlap the spoons a bit over the row below. This should make for a cool design once you finish gluing your spoons.

Once you have made it to the top of the bottle, you will have to create a separate piece to cover the bottleneck. To do this, you simply glue some spoons together in a circle that you can then place on the top of your bottle to hide the neck.

3. Finishing Touches

After your glue has dried, you can insert the cable into the bottle and attach a light bulb. Now, all you have to do is find a place to hang your new lamp! It will look great during the day and even cooler when it illuminates the darkness!
