cardboard lamp

While it’s often something that we toss into the recycling bin without so much as a second thought, cardboard is actually a pretty amazing craft material!  We’ve seen it transformed into some pretty amazing things, including this fun, geometric lamp from Marta at 2nd Funniest Thing.  The instructions for the project are in Spanish, but the photos are excellent and make it easy to follow along.  This would be a super fun project for a dorm room or a teen’s homework desk!  [how to make a recycled cardboard geometric lamp]

Project estimate:

  • Cardboard, on hand
  • Tape, on hand or $1 and up
  • Lamp kit, about $5 and up

Total:  about $5 and up
