Fish Scale Pendant Lamp

Glue dyed paper circles to lantern to create this galaxy lamp!
I showed you lamp projects so many time that I really can’t decide which one is the best. Some of these are crazy and colorful as Paint Swatch Chandelier, and other are toned down like Paper Cupcake Liners Lamp or Rustic Lace Lamp. Check them out, I wonder which one would you choose to hang at your place? Those of you who have a few rooms won’t have any problem, you always can match lamps to interiors ;)

I found this project on the ‘Design Sponge’; they shared it from Kara Paslay - the great interior designer and window display artist. She used easily available paper lantern as a base. You should know that the lantern is the most expensive supply for this craft. So the total cost of this decorative lighting is really low. Next step is dyeing paper circles, Kara got awesome galaxy effect, but you, of course, can choose other color, it’s all up to your imagination.
