Creative process: features

Original fixtures with their own hands are products that consist of:

  • cord;
  • forks;
  • cartridge;
  • LED or energy saving lamp.

These are the main parts of the design thatare necessary first of all in order that the lamp with their own hands was not just a beautiful element of decor, but also a light, that is, it fulfilled its basic function. Disco nightlight can be made from old disks. All his talent and design potential the master must invest in the process of designing and creating the lamp shade. And in order for fantasy to work, one should turn to several of the most common examples and methods by which the lamps are created with their own hands.

  • "Disco nightlight." This kind of lamp can be made from a balloon from under the water. This balloon can be beautifully wrapped in an organza of any color suitable to the interior. It is the color of the fabric that will determine the soft glow of the hue, which will radiate this night light. Inside the balloon it is necessary to arrange the light bulbs of the most ordinary LED tape. Replace the tape, you can even the most ordinary Christmas tree garland, this nightlight will look even more impressive. Quite brightly designed night light with a gentle light will be a wonderful decoration in the nursery or in any other room where such a gentle, intimate light is needed.
  • «The lamp shade». These options for the design of the lamp with their own hands are perfect for romantic natures. Such a method can be easily applied both in the design of a conventional lamp, and in the decoration of chandeliers and floor lamps. To implement the presented method, it is enough to purchase ribbons from organza of bright colors, to tighten the lamp with a cylinder from the grid, on which to impose these very ribbons. The longer the ribbons, the more splendid and more spread out your lamp will be. Such design allows you to experiment with color, creating a monochrome, two-color or motley multi-color product.
  • "High-tech luminaires." This kind of lamps will certainly be appreciated by admirers of this interior style. They can be made from old glass bottles. The process of manufacturing such an exotic element is complicated only by the fact that the bottles chosen need to somehow remove the bottom, and even make it so that the edges of the lamp do not pose a danger. To do this, you can use the most common glass cutter, but if it was not at hand, you can use the following method:
    • The bottle is tied with a cotton rope at the required level;
    • rope set on fire;
    • When the rope inflames, sharply lower the bottle into the basin with cold water;
    • because of the temperature difference, the glass cracked just in the place where the burning rope was, and this leads to the fact that the bottom breaks off.

    Now, when an unnecessary part of the so-called glass ceiling is removed, it remains only to pass through the neck a cord with a cartridge at the end and the lamp is ready with its own hands. Back to contents</a>
