DIY globe lamp

Hang the world, then light it up! (DIY)

I had an old illuminated globe that I didn’t use anymore. And I needed a hanging lamp. Tada, the hanging globe lamp. Life can be easy sometimes.

And while making it, I also thought about this: With a slight modification to the lamp, the globe lights up only half. This way you can see where it’s day and where it’s night. Just throwing it out here..

    • Hi Jaclyn,
      I could. But it’s actually really simple. Besides, making something yourself gives great pleasure. I don’t want to take that away from you ;)

      Good luck and have fun with it.

      • I’m rubbish at arts and crafts but I’m gunna give it a go. How did you make the globes so glossy looking? Also did you find there was sufficient light coming from it even thought you hadn’t made a hole in the bottom? :)
