1  There is no spoon - Recycled lamp in CHALLENGE 27 ENTRIES by catwithoutmouth on: May 05, 2008 10:02:55 AM
Here is my entry. I made a lamp out of ice cream sundae spoons and a $2.00 IKEA light fixture.

What you need:


A love for ice cream so you can collect plastic spoons, or cocktails optional (works with cocktail sticks, too Smiley)
A cheap bathroom light fixture
A heat gun
A glue gun

What you do with it:



You start by playing around and finding out what kind of spoon does what when you heat it up.
When you are happy with your results, you can start layering the curled spoons onto the glass bowl of the light fixture.
The hot plastic will stick to the other spoons and they will form a single layer.
Be sure to do this in a well ventilated area!
When finished with the spoons, use the glue gun to glue the plastic bowl to the glass of the light fixture for stability.

What you get:



A lovely light fixture that surprisingly stands up well to the heat. We put an energy saving lamp into it, so it doesn't get too hot. And all this for $2.00!!!

A special thanks to everybody who helped me collect the spoons, often under great sacrifice to their personal appearance Smiley and to my husband, who ran to the ice cream store to get more spoons when I was running short with the deadline approaching rapidly. He also mounted the light fixture. Mua.

This is a picture I made of a spider hanging in her web between some leaves in Muir Woods National Monument.
The camera used is a Canon Digital Rebel with an 18-55 lens.
