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

***ROCKS***

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.
