Super Bowl!


Description: A table lamp made out of plastic cups, plates, bowls and salad bowls:

Drill a hole through the plastic plate, the cups and bowls in order to be able to stick the table lamp base through. Cut a circle out of the biggest salad bowl in order to make space for the light bulb.

Place the cut-out circle between the cups in order to give them more stability when put on top of each other.

Undo the metal base of the table lamp base and pull out the electric cable. Glide the plate, the two cups and the two little bowls over the table lamp base and tighten with the screw at the end. Put the electric cable back in place. Now place the two biggest salad bowls on top of the plate after fitting in a light bulb. Switch on the light!
