I found a cute little round lamp at a thrift store a few years ago. With the help of my husband we finally came up with a good idea to put it to use.  Grin

The lamp shade is painted one both sides so you can change his face. The hat is built out of cardboard and covered in fabric. I left it hollow so heat can escape from the top.

That's adorable! I normally prefer my lamps a lot plainer, but I'm itching to try that myself, now! I always loved the Mayor's spinning face; what a creative idea (:

Beware the Platypirates and their tri-corner hats.

That's an awesome use of those shapes. Now whenever I see a lampshade, I will imagine the Mayor!

Thanks everyone! He was super fun to make and he turned out perfectly! The weather is kind of crappy here but once it clears up I can't wait to go thrifting for more lamps!

Sadly, I have to give this one away tomorrow. But I plan to make myself one next. Then I have one to make for a friend's nursery. If I can find more than two, I'll paint one for Etsy. Smiley

He is absolutely stunning! The next time I head out to the thrift store, I have to look for a round lamp now. I need to steal your idea and maybe make a Jack Skellington one instead Smiley
