Glass Dish Lamp

4 Materials
5 Minutes

I found a free broken cake stand, and let my imagination visualize what it could be. I added a bowl and a remote LED light and created a lamp for my home.

I bought these waterproof, color changing LED lights with remote online. they are really cool - you can pick a solid color, rotating colors, and more. You can find them here -

I placed on upside down in this broken cake stand that I found for free at a thrift store.

I then placed hot glue on the top edge of the cake stand. You could use another adhesive if you like but I wanted to be able to get it back off so that I could get to the light in case I needed to replace the batteries. Another alternative is Museum Wax - it's designed to hold things in place during an earthquake.

I then placed a bowl I had on hand upside down onto the cake stand.

I let the hot glue cool completely.

I placed the lamp in my living room and use the remote to turn it on. Since the light inside is waterproof and well protected by the glass I can also place it under my covered porch to enjoy on a warm evening.
