DIY Tide Pods Rainbow Fish Lamp

$12.00
2 Hours
Easy

An empty container of Tide Pods became this lovely and inexpensive lamp for my son's room. All you need other than the container is a glue gun, a circle paper punch, craft paper and a lamp kit and shade. I made mine for about $12 dollars.

I got lucky and found a lampshade on sale for about 6 dollars. Open a hole on the lid  to attach the lamp kit set and another on the bottom of the container so the cable can exit and be free to connect.
