Upyarn your Lamp


- a Varte lamp
- yarn in your desired colors
- glue, simple paper glue is fine


1. Grab your Varte lamp and your yarn
2. Wrap the yarn from top to bottom around the lamp – make sure the rows connect
3. Glue the yarn about every 10 centimeters, you need more glue once you’ve reached the bottom
4. Use different colors, but don’t use only dark colors (you will not get enough light from your lamp)


Good Luck!

    @Emma: When you use a LED bulb as recommended by IKEA the lamp won’t get warm that much.

    Um, what happens to the glue when the lamp gets warm?
