Do you have some old books collecting dust and you just don’t know what to do with them? Why not make a lamp? I make several different ones and this one doesn’t require drilling a hole in the books.
- Old books
- Candle lamp
- Glue gun
- Mod podge or white glue
- Twigs or vine
- Old eye glasses
Pick out books that you would like to create the base of your lamp, you can choose as many as you like. I like to glue the sides of the books with Mod Podge so when I pick up the lamp the books won’t open. I let the books dry overnight, and when they are dry, I glue the books together, using a hot glue gun. I glue the doily to the books and then the candle lamp, also using a glue gun. I like to put some twigs or vines around the base of the lamp and add a pair of old eye glasses, gluing in place. To add more country charm, add a silicone bulb. If you would like t make your own silicone bulbs, here is my tutorial.
Have you made a book lamp? I would love to see what you have created, please share your link.
