Dudero – made into a real dude!

Materials: DUDERO, black paper, a fake mustache, white chalk, scissors and a knife.

Description: We bought the DUDERO – but we found it too plain and boring. So after pasting on a fake mustache, which made it look like Freddy Mercury, we decided to make the lamp into a pirate. See the result!
