If you haven’t heard about the Iron Craft challenge going on this year, you should definitely check it out!  Each week, they are issuing a new themed challenge for crafters to complete.  The theme for the first week was “Lighting the Winter Gloom,” with a call for crafts related to candles, lamps, and other light sources.  There were a lot of fabulous entries, but one in particular really caught my eye.  Claire from Poopscape hacked an Ikea lamp by covering it with black and white photo negatives.  I love the way it looks with the light shining though it.  You can use whatever photo negatives you have on hand for the project.  I think it would be neat to make them using negatives from specific events, like a family reunion or vacation photos!  [how to make a photo negative lamp]

Project estimate:

  • Ikea Grönö lamp, $6.99
  • Photo negatives, on hand
  • Mod Podge, on hand

Total: $6.99
