margaret_loves making lamps

Now that I have made a couple miniature lamps, I can't seem to stop :). I had saved a few items I thought would make good lamp bases, and now I have finally put them to use.

Left: Lampshade made from a wallpaper sample, base is a green ceramic drawer knob glued on a white button.  Center: Shade is made from ribbon, base is painted wood. Right: Shade is white cardstock, base is made from a metal pushpin, blue plastic bead, and clear button. The lampshades are attached using the wire harp method I mentioned in a previous post, though this time I used hot glue to secure them in place. 


  1. Hahaha, I love the change in title from the last post.

    They all look great!
    I'm going to have to try making a lamp once I start in on one of the bedrooms ... you've inspired me.

  2. Nice lamps,i found your blog via Pinterest and i am happy i did, i am also mad about miniatures and blog about it.

  3. I didn't know you had a blog! I am going to have to make a lamp now. I don't have any! What a great idea!

  4. Heather-once I finally figure out how to do something I have struggled with, I can't stop doing it:) Glad to help inspire you!
    Maria, I am glad to have some Pinterest friends here, I was hoping it would bring in some people with the same interests :) I will check out your blog!
    cowboybunny, glad you found me, and best of luck with your project!

  5. Hi Margaret,

    I also ended up here from Pinterest. I am working on a project that involves miniatures. Your lamps look really cool! Do you think beads could work in place of the drawer knobs, though?

    Great work,
