Star Wars Light Saber Lamp

Materials: Ikea Hemma Lamp

Description: I saw a these cool light saber lamps and wanted them for my office but they cost $65. Then I thought I could do it myself and I did. I detailed it step by step here.

Basically, it is done with an Ikea Hemma lamp and a Hasbro toy light sabre. It only costs about $21 in total.

What you’ll need:
- light saber: $10
- Ikea lamp: $5
- lamp shade: $5
- washer: $0.13
- spray paint: $1

    Thanks for this idea! I made mine using the 18″ Hemma instead of the 14″, so there would be a little blade visible. Also used a color matching light bulb. Final effect is pretty awesome.

    Aloha! The current link to the ‘how to’ section contains extra information, and so doesn’t work.
