DIY Light Sculpture from Ikea Lamps

You know who puts one lamp in their home? An amateur, that's who. Home tech baddies wire up as many Ikea lamps as they can get their hands on and create a light sculpture.

$4.99 Ikea Lampan table lamps take on a new look as larger-than-life light sculptures.

Take six, twelve, 32 or even 92 lamps to make a just-right sculpture for your space, Goldilocks. Pick red, black or white, or combine all three. Leave it on the ground or hang it from the ceiling.The possibilities are endless.

All you've got to do is follow the DIY instructions from Instructables user daan. He's included PDF templates of how to make the six-, 12- and 32-ers, but you can easily adapt the plan to any size, really.

Get in on it here (Make sure you scope out the comment from one eager reader and see the pic of his 92-lamp hanging orb!)
