We were excited to see that Aunt Peaches was one of our randomly chosen secret stashbusters because she’s got an uber-quirky style we can’t help but adore.  True to form, her first project is as funky as can be:  The Pee Wee’s Playhouse Lamp, or if you prefer, the Hebrew Dinosaur Explosion.  Kaboom!  She made it using one of the most commonly stashed craft supplies, craft foam.  It’s a bright and colorful idea that could be adapted to fit many different themes, and looks great with or without a lamp kit.  [how to make a Pee Wee’s Playhouse inspired pendant lamp]
