Our latest project! I got the idea for this awesome light out of the Lowe's Creative Ideas magazine I get every month. We aren't sure if this is where it will stay. We're thinking of making another one, hooking them together and hanging them over the large window in his room.
This one only cost us like $14! Not bad for a neat light that nobody else has! And it goes great with the industrial/grunge look he has in his room!
Instructions are as follows:
Cast a cool glow with this high-style, low-cost lamp. Grab a utility knife and follow these easy steps to create your own flex lamp.
- Step 1: Cut the square ends off the Flex-A-Spout.
- Step 2: Fold the rope light in half and push it through the Flex-A-Spout. Be sure to leave the electrical plug hanging out of one end.
- Step 3: Twist the Flex-a-Spout into the desired shape.
- Step 4: Plug in the rope light, and you’re ready to glow
You will be grateful for this tip as I spent two weeks searching for it and could not find it! LOL
