Glowing Flower

Materials: IKEA Regolit Lamp, small and big paper muffin liners,a pair of scissors, glue

Description: I was a little bit bored by our Regolit Lamp, so I changed it a little bit.

First you have to cut the sides until the bottom of the Paper Muffin Liners.
After this you have to turn the paper muffin liners inside out and glue some of the smaller paper muffin liners into the bigger one.

Then you just have to glue the paper muffin liners on the REGOLIT lamp – DONE :)

I love it and it reminds me on a dandelion seed head…

    Where can you buy white muffin/cupcake liners in such large amount? :)

    • I bought them in Rossmann- that´s a drugstore in germany, and basically they have a pretty normal size. They just seems to be so much larger next to the smaller one ;) and they become a little bit larger, if you turn them inside out :)

    I would think this a fire hazard…

    Love it! And I’d love to do this myself, but would you mind sharing how many hours and muffin liners did this take?

    • Thank you very much :)

      Well, I bought 200 big muffin liners and 200 small smaller ones, but I didn`t use all of them…just almost ;) and I didn´t look at a clock, but I did it during two evenings, while I was drinking tea and watching TV, so it could be finished much faster ;) - maybe in 2 or 3 hours, I think so.

      Have a nice evening :)
