Paper Scrap Lamp

Use scrap paper and glue to redesign your old paper lamp!
You may be bored with your manufactured round paper Ikea lamp one day, and that’s the best opportunity to give a personal touch to your home. There are lots of project letting you give new life to old lamps. I even have my favorite lamp expert. I've already shared Cristina’s of ‘Design Sponge’ Cupcake Liners Lamp, which is quite classy design.

But the next project was a big surprise for me. Cristina cut strips from scrap paper and glued them onto the shade. The effect she got was an artichoke like lamp or if you like a hairy head dangling from the ceiling. The light this Paper Scrap Lamp gives, is a bit more dimmed then a regular one, but it’s worth investing time in this project as you get something original.

So if you want a new budget lamp you can cut corners on redesigning old one, don’t forget to send us the photos of redesigned lamps
