Crafty Hangouts was sponsored by Darice Crafts and let me just say...it's awesome!
The who, what, where, when of making this craft is below the video - friendly reminder - if you open the viewer in YouTube you can give it a thumbs up! What I want to talk about first is why this is an awesome DIY/Crafty gift idea. In fact I've put together three reason and they are:
Reason #1 AFFORDABILITY
When I shared this idea with my sister she pointed out how expensive lamps are and noted that this is a good alternative! How right she was; the bottle adapter is $6.47 (the mason jar adapter is $10.97) and the bulbs range from $5.97 to $15.97. Definitely an affordable alternative and one you could switch out and change with little to no effort!
Reason #2 CREATIVITY
You don't HAVE to use a bottle, the stopper works in pipes too! Wouldn't it be fun to create a funky pipe sculpture/floor lamp?
Reason #3 YOU DON'T ACTUALLY HAVE TO PUT THE D IN THIS DIY PROJECT
If you are actually giving this as a gift (as opposed to keeping it for yourself) there's nothing that says you HAVE to do the work yourself. Gather together the bulb, adapter, and other crafty materials and gift it to your favorite DIYer. (I talk about this in the video and give suggestions for what to pack in that gift box.)
Now that I've got your attention, check out this video!
