Look! Christina's DIY Lamp

AT:SF reader Christina wrote in to show us her DIY lamp. She was inspired by our post, How To: Make a Glittering Lightscape. She says, Well, it's more a "lightsource" than a lamp. But i found the DIY project idea on AT so I thought i'd share!......I bought the Xmas lights at ikea and I already had the canvas. I penciled the backside with the pattern I wanted and then made holes with a screw. The lamp isn't perfect, as there were many left-over bulbs and I didn't quite know what to do with them. I didn't want them coming down the wall so I just kind of randomly shoved them into the canvas. Still thinking about how to solve this problem, but in the mean time it's a great, soft source of lighting. Cost me about 30 bucks and two hours of a Sunday-- totally worth it.

Thanks, Christina!
