{DIY} Tuesday – Twig Lamp

{Image: Better Homes & Gardens }

Ever stop and pick up sticks while you’re out for a walk?

I know we do – whenever we’re out walking through the forest, we all end up with walking sticks that get discarded before we come home.  Might need to just hang on to some if I ever want to create this beautifully natural DIY lamp base.

What you need:
  • 15-20 twigs (bundle with twine to keep them relatively straight and let dry for a month before using)
  • Three rubber bands
  • Threaded metal rod
  • Twine
  • Crafts glue
  • Scissors
  • Pruner or utility knife
  • Wood round with precut hole in center
  • Electrical lamp kit
  • Felt pads or plastic “buttons”
  • Lampshade

You’ll find the assembly instructions here on the Better Homes & Gardens website.
