I saw this idea somewhere online and thought "I can do this!". It's made out of the little plastic containers of a fruit yoghurt brand named "Fruchtzwerge" (the Germans on here will know...). The eating was the hardest part, the stuff is sickly sweet and especially the banana-flavored kind is making me ill. But I made my way through all 70 pieces (!).

After that it was a piece of cake (or yoghurt, in this case Smiley). I just stringed the containers together with little metal rings, put them on a lampshade ring and ... done! (The plastic won't melt because we're using it with a low-heat, energy-saving bulb and the radius of the thing is wide enough)

On to the pictures:

The whole thing:

Hope you enjoy!

Wow...this totally rocks!

It's very Eames era mod...which I love. Grin

We have them in Canada too...they're called Petite Danone.  Ahhh they are kinda nasty tasting.....strange aftertaste.

Kudos on eating 70 of them!!

Thanks for the nice comments  Grin Originally I wanted to string some beads underneath the last row of containers to give it a more kitschy look, but my boyfriend vetoed this idea - too girly. But it really does give a nice light, especially since the inside of the things is white.

Here's a picture of it lit up:

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

Wow, I haven't eaten Fruchtzwerge in years, but I remember I always liked them. But maybe not enough to eat that much.
But the result is amazing, great work.
Have to go now to buy some Fruchtzwerge  Wink

Oh.My.Gosh. That is what I have been looking for!  I have a billion of those little Danino yogurt containers and I said " It's much too wasteful to throw those away." Now I know what to do with them. THANK YOU!!!!! By the way, did they melt when you lit them up?
