The lamp itself:
The inspiration:

It falls short of what I imagined. I do like it still. It's a corrugated plastic frame with pantyhose stretched over it, painted with varnish to make it sturdy then filled with christmas lights.

I sewed it up with the help of tweezers to push the needle back through which reminded me of in the movie when the metal hand creature sews the Coraline doll.

gwaAAA? This is amazing! My light fetish is definitely kicking in. Was it very expensive to make? How did you fasten the cardboard to the pantyhose to each other? This will definitely be in my dreams tonight. This so rocks!

 Cheesy glad you like it!
chippywarrior: it was completely made from things I had around the house, so it was free. If you have a strand of christmas lights, ripped pantyhose, and varnish I think it would be very easy to make. The pantyhose were stretched over the frame tightly, twisted closed, knotted, painted with varnish, and then the knots cut off. I hope that makes sense.
