Hi all, This is my first project I have posted. Hope you all like it.



It is a balsa wood frame painted black and covered in a pretty filigree die-cut scrapbook paper layered with vellum.



I at first tried a candle and found it wasn't bright enough, so I wired a candelabra sized LED in. (Also I found out balsa is extremely flammable! No candles!)



Thanks for looking!

Dani

I was about to say as I was reading that, FIRE! But glad you decided not to make a pretty bonfire. It's gorgeous, where is it living? Cheesy

Thanks everyone for the nice comments. I haven't quite decided where to put it. I didn't really need a lamp. Just had inspiration strike.
