DIY – Upgrade your lamp with paper
Saturday morning I did a feature on the Swedish TV4 network on their morning show called Nyhetsmorgon. I upgraded a simple modern lamp since my motto is more is more.
1. I used an old book, punched big holes in it with a puncher. Then colored some of the “leaves” with ordinary kids watercolor. Let it dry and used melt glue gun to get them to stick to the lampshade.
2. Around the foot of the lamp I simply attached a honeycomb. I think this would look lovely with different small ones as well.
3. On the cord I threaded wooden balls.
Take a look on the clip below or on this link then you can watch me make it!
I like the pattern the different leaves makes when the lamp is lighted. Also if you want less of more is more. Just do the cord alone or the shade or the foot.
Here there is a embedded clip from TV4. On my Iphone I cant see it but try this link.
