Modern Farmhouse Jenga Blocks Lamp DIY

Are you ready to explore some fun craft with Jenga Blocks today straight from Dollar Tree? Do you find yourself trying to do something cool with Jenga Block ?

I have used Jenga blocks in so many projects that you can check on my BLOG OR YouTube channel. Today I would like to put my Jenga blocks into special use and make a candle holder or lamp. Don't you just love good budget friendly projects?

I like to start my project with adding a stain to my Jenga blocks so it nicely fit into my home decor. Pack from Dollar Tree often comes mixed with dark and natural colors pieces.I like to use my water stain wood stain for that. It for sure it is easier to work with and it doesn't have much of a strong smell of stain

I always wipe my stain with rug or paper towel after to make sure stain is nicely distributed. Make sure to wear some gloves.

Love the shading on my Jenga Blocks! Good thing about using water base stains is that all almost instantly dries out so you can almost instantly move to next step.

Little bit of gorilla hot glue on a center of each block will nicely adhere them to my glass vase. I like to add my glue to wider portion of my Jenga block so it does have that slick Modern Farmhouse look ... and of course I only have 2 packages

As you can see blocks are really not touching each other and the is ok because you do want to leave a opening for light to come through.

My lamp shade is growing so fast and I am soo anxious to see it done. Always loved to play with blocks when I was a little girl so this lamp diy was actually super fun project to relax with.

Just like that my Modern Farmhouse Jenga Block Lamp diy is completed! Total cost $3 ... All what you need is to insert a candle or LED lights and you are all good to go to enjoy your freshly made lamp. That is what I am talking about budget friendly craft that also looks super cool. Hope that you agree with me on that

    I missed something... this takes about it being a lamp but I can’t see where the light part comes in? Also, the shade? I’m sorry. I must have overlooked it. But, even so, it’s a neat vase!

    You could maybe even use a "puck" style light that has a remote ...

    However you use it, it's cool!

    Very cool project. I wonder if putting the stain in a small spray bottle would make quicker work of the staining process.
