Anyway today Looby and I made a spring lamp out of a deli container so I thought we'd share it. Our color inspiration came from some beautiful spring Pansy's I have on my table. I love how it turned out, now I'm just trying to work out how I can make it even more environmentally friendly by using a solar light, I have found mason jar lids but nothing smaller. Any tips drop me a comment.
You will need:
Clear plastic container - we used one that had had olives in it
Small light, I used a small self contained light LED I found here on Amazon but you could glue in a battery operated tea light.
String / ribbon
Begin by making a small hole in the bottom of the plastic container, thread the string through and attach the bulb.
Looby took over for the next part and covered the container with squares of tissue paper using modge podge.
Once it was dry she added some flower stickers to the outside and cut a doily to use as a fringe on the bottom. Super pleased with herself and it was even better in the dark when we turned out the lights.
These would be so pretty hung around the garden in summer, shame its too cold now!
