A framed lamp from a vase

Materials: Rektangel Vase (00215576), Ribba Frame (70243528), Dioder lights (40192356)

Description: From the frame, discard everything but the frame itself and the paper. Fix the paper in front of the frame with some adhesive tape. Use the Dioder strip and place it along the inside border of the frame, fixing it with more adhesive tape to the paper.

Be careful to leave one end with space to connect it. Put the frame on the floor with the LEDs upwards and then just place the vase on top of it. Switch it on and enjoy.

    Love the idea….will do a similiar one but will drill a Hole into the frame and get the cable thru there….I will experiment with a ground sheet in the vase to get the lightning a bit more misterious ;-) )

    It is a brilliant production!! Well done!

    To the comment from Anonymous I would say stick a vinyl cut design in a dark color. Wrapping won’t be as magical.

    I’m thinking this might be even cooler if you wrapped the vase in something so the light is only coming out the top. Hmmm….
