Vintage Solar Lamps
Hi One More Time Friends! Today I thought I would share another project that was done for my daughter’s wedding. These Vintage Lamps were redesigned to sit at the head table. These were redone with solar lights, since it was an outdoor wedding. The electrical cords were removed, but reserved to put back to its original state. Can you believe we are still waiting for the wedding pictures? We were told 6-8 weeks, so when I get those I will share how they looked on the head table, but for now I will share how these were made.
How to make your own lampshade with molds
Squares were cut out from the bottom of the Brioche Mold to allow sunlight in
removing the stakes from the solar lights, the Solar Lights was hot glued in place
Adding Solar Lights to Mold Lamp Shades
The solar light fits right into the socket. I added a little hot glue to hold it in place. Once it was secure I added a rusted mason jar lid to the top. I used the tops of what holds a Christmas ornament and poked a hole in the middle, placed the faux crystal inside and glued it in place.
The rusted mason jar lid was used as a small area to add some baby’s breath. That is pretty much to it. Have you ever thought of using molds for lamp shades? What I love is they do come in all different sizes and can be found at most thrift shops just for a couple of bucks. Each one of these Vintage Solar Lamps only cost me about $5.00 to make. I am not sure I will put them back to the original lamp, I kind of like them like this. I know the solar lights won’t work, but I do think they make the perfect accent piece…what do you think? Thinking they might be cute added to Christmas decor.
