Turtle Love

DIY(Do-It-Yourself) has its own charm. My first post in this section has to be about this piece I made. This was a college project but it was more personal than just a college assignment. This lamp was for my study table, after all there has to be something not-so-serious among all the work.

How did I go about it-

The base was created by paper-mache technique, layering news paper bits on a balloon until it was thick enough.

The head and legs was made with the same technique.

Then come the tough part, making holes on the shell. Yes! We need the light to pass through, don’t we. I made plenty of holes with a compass and a pen. (Smart!  Isn’t it! )

I used gift wrapping ribbons to decorate the shell. Just twist it and stick it. Simple.

Ribbons!

Then the base with a small light bulb with proper wiring and it’s done!! 🙂

Cheers!
