To create this design or rustic ( it depends on how you see it 😉 ) you will need:
– for the base : cement and a plastic bucket
Advice: fill totally the bucket with cement to be sure that your lamp will not fall down.
Let it dry for 3 to 5 days and add a little bit of water on the top everyday to avoid that the cement breaks.
– for the rod : 2 pieces of dead branches and cord to fix the branches together
– for the lampshade : cord, glue, some water and an XXL balloon.
Inflate it (not too much) and surround it with the cord you previously soaked in the glue mixed with a little bit of water.
Advice: do not press the balloon with the cord if you do not want it to blow up.
You will have to wait a night until it is dry. Then you just have to blow up the balloon with a needle.
– for the electrical installation : an electric cable with 2 poles, an integrated switch and lamp socket.
Staple the cable on the branches every 15 cm (do not break through the electric cable).
Advice: put grease-proof paper in the lampshade to subdue the light.
