I finally made it! I have been looking for some time now to find a light for our hallway. I found a beautiful lamp made with plastic spoons at guiademanualidades. The tutorial is in Spanish but the photos are great and it's an easy project which requires patience! I gathered my materials and started going. I used a 10L plastic bottle, hot glue, about 270 spoons and....feathers!
There was only one minor problem. My bottle, unlike the one at guiademanualidades, did not have parallel lines on it but a spiral, so some of the spoons are a little more pointy then the others but they are lost in the chaos of the lamp. I thought at first to cover the bottle with white paper but changed my mind because i believed that it would minimize the light.
So i started by cutting the bottom of the bottle and then i begun gluing the spoons. I broke the handle of them and kept just the curvy part. Since there where no parallel lines on the bottle the first line was not that straightened so i unglued the spoons and glued them more carefully the second time. I placed my lamp on a miniature of the Eiffel Tower that we have at home so that it was about at my height (it's not that much but anyway!)
I glued 18 rows with 15 spoons at each one. When i finally made it to the top the curve of the bottle was kind of inconvenient for me to glue the rest of the spoons. I glued and unglued them 2 or 3 times in different ways, but i was not happy with the result. I had two options : to cut the top part of the bottle or to find something else to use there. And then it came to me : feathers!
I was ready to finish my project! I glued the feathers on the lamp and i was finally and officially over with it!
Kind of funny. Isn't it? I love it! It was time the man of the house took some action and hang it!
I love my fluffy lamp! I used the remaining feathers at my stick-tail origami peacock!
Since the time my love hang it i'm turning it on and off like a baby!
