Turn your home into a visual heaven! The home should be a place of serenity with a touch of elegance and class. Doily lamps can add a graceful element to the home and making one is a fun experience! Doily lamps can turn a boring space into a great conversation starter. They not only brighten up the room, but create amazing shadow effects at night. Doily lamps will give life to any room in your home!
What you need to make it happen:
A balloon (Any size will do)
Doily patches (Number depends on the desired size of the lamp)
Plastic Tarp or Trash Bags
Electrical ceiling hardware kit or lantern power cord and light socket
Florescent light bulb
Spread the plastic tarp on the floor or cut plastic trash bags in half and use it as a tarp
Inflate the balloon and cover it with petroleum jelly with the paint brush. Make sure it’s soaked and covered.
Use the thread to hang the inflated balloon in mid air over the tarp.
Paint each doily with wallpaper glue. (It would be wise to either keep a window open or do the project outside. Depending on the wallpaper glue, the smell could be strong.)
Take the doilies and place them on the balloon overlapping each other. (Make sure to leave and opening for the light socket kit)
Let the doily lamp hang and dry for 3 days or until they are completely dry
Then pop the balloon
Attached the lamp to the electric hardware kit or a lantern power cord and socket kit use
