Heather from DollarStoreCrafts.com made this lamp for a contest where you had to make a home decor item out of dollar store purchases totaling no more than $5.00. Brilliant and hysterical!
Woodland Animal Lamps
These lamps manage to pull off sophisticated and kitschy. Quite a feat. Find then at Anthropologie.
Strung Garden Lights Made from Cupcake Papers
Camilla from the Family Chic blog was looking at Ikea’s cupcake liners recently and they reminded her of pretty little lampshades so she made strung lights out of them for her garden! Check out her blog entry for the step by step instructions. (Discovered via DollarStoreCrafts)
P.S. If you’re wondering if these would be a fire hazard since the liners are paper, Camilla points out that since they’re safe for the oven, there’s probably not a fire risk.
P.P.S. These would be an awesome and unique decoration for a baby or wedding shower! Especially if you’re serving cupcakes!
Big Gummi Bear Lamp
Not only are these lamps made in the likeness of gummi bears but they are described as “soft and rubbery” with “tiny LEDs in their butts.” Awesome. Designed by Jellio.
Hot Pink Deer Lamp
Not only is this lamp hot pink and adorable, but I love that it’s also sleek and stylized which tones down the kitsch factor. (Not that there’s anything wrong with a little kitsch!) Check it out at UrbanOutfitters.com.
