The 2nd to two lamps made for Christmas Gifts.


What can you do with a fern basket, a tuna can and some Halloween "Eyeballs"? I made a lamp!
In the Beginning we had a fern basket
Painted the "eyeballs" and added them along with beads for decoration
Used a Tuna can and the lid off a "Cookie" tin to make a fixture for the globe
Found the globe at the GW for 1.99
Lit up
In addition to "drilling" the cans to accomodate the Light hardware and wiring, I also drilled around the bottom edge of the rim to allow the heat of the bulb to escape.

    AMEN!@Sharron W aarrgghh! I watch HGTV a lot, and these.... people....I have cleaned ss in homes for years,a nd they were a n ightmare, besides I like the hominess of clean white! My dear friend also cleans homes,and she hates ss appliances too, for the very same reason! What I hate is the pretentiousness on HGTV of lookers, however on the other hand,to play Devil's advocate, if they are spending more on a house than my hubs would make in 10 years, I guess they can be picky.
