Hello Style Bunnies 🙂

A house is just a house without decorating. The home decor you choose is a reflection of your and your family. Lightning plays an important role in home décor. It makes your room more warm and classy. You can fill any dull corner of your room with lights and lamps.

So here is a quick DIY craft to brighten up a dull corner of your home. Here is all that you need for this DIY paper lamps:

  • A few multicolored A4 cartridge sheets (handmade sheets would also do)
  • A stapler
  • PVC glue
  • Electric bulb holders
  • Zero watt bulbs or low-wattage CFLs
  • Electric plastic coated wire

Just roll the A4 paper into a large cone, apply glue and seal with a stapler (so that the glue sets in and the shape is retained). Remove the stapler pin once the glue is dry and set.

And if you are up for a little more bling, then just rub a glue stick liberally all over the paper lamps and sprinkle some silver or gold glitter until the paper lamp is fully covered. Now attach wire to the bulb holders, and string into the paper lamps… that’s it… that’s how simple it is!
