Craft: Make a Doll Sized Lamp

 Hello! Today I have a fun and easy craft for you: a doll sized lamp! I have seen a few lamp
crafts before, but I decided to make my own version of a doll lamp, so let's get started.

Here is what the finished lamp looks like.

You will need:
1. a candlestick that is about 6 to 8" tall
2. paint and paint brush
3. glue
4. paper (your choice)
5. scissors
6. empty roll from masking tape
7. clean and dry yogurt topping lid
8. battery operated tea light candle

First, paint your candlestick whatever color you want. White is a good color,
because it will match any color lampshade you pick.
Note: this candlestick was about $1.80 at Hobby Lobby (with coupon), and the rest of the supplies were things I already had around the house. So it is a very cheap doll lamp!

Here is the painted candlestick. I painted mine twice.

Now take the empty masking tape roll, and the empty yogurt lid thingy.....

And glue the yogurt thingy into the empty tape roll. Let that dry.

Next, take the paper you choose for the lampshade and cut a strip about 5" wide,
and cut all the way across.

Now take the empty tape roll (that has the yogurt thingy inside) and put glue around it.

Glue your pretty paper carefully around it, making sure the edges meet exactly together.

Now you'll have this.

Almost done.

So put some glue around the top of the candlestick (I forgot to take a photo with the glue on.)

And place your lampshade on top.
Then just set the tea light down inside on top of the yogurt lid.

That's it!

I hope you enjoyed!
