DIY Crafts – Home Decor – How to Make Handmade Lighting !
Now we will create a complex, but very beautiful hand-crafted article at the dacha. Namely, a street lamp with its own hands in a large glass flask inside with a twig of wood. We were pleased to provide this master class to a friend in this specialty. Making a homemade takes almost the whole day, and beginners have more than a day.
It is necessary to create a base of cement, in this basis there should be a place for electronic microcircuits. This is to ensure that the garland glows and plugs into the outlet. The most difficult to fit the size of the cement base under the glass flask.
So, we take a special material and make the insides for the electrical circuits. We create a special markup using a ruler and a pencil.
Make a circle and glue both edges together.
Cut out the bottom, and then glue it with hot glue from a special gun.
Take the steel sheet, we will twist it inside the flask and fill it with cement, thereby making the base for the luminaire .
Draw the longitudinal horizontal lines to determine the boundaries.
That’s how they will look.
We twist the steel sheet and insert it into the flask.
Fasten the edges and fix the size.
Now we glue tight borders on the border, which we then remove and give the appropriate shape of the base.
The most important thing is to make the limiters even, on the same level.
Draw the circle on the foil, and then the circle of the inner empty hole.
Spread the inner circle with a glue gun.
We put on the glue the walls of the inner hole.
Then fix the temporary flask.
We mix the cement and pour it inside the steel flask.
When the cement is dry and frozen, we remove the iron frame and remove the temporary rubber strips.
That’s what we got. We see some irregularities.
Here is the bottom in an inverted form.
Using special tools, we rub the irregularities and smooth the walls.
Choose a beautiful branch of birch and blow it out with black paint from the can.
Straight in the center of the base make a hole. We use an ordinary drill.
We do the fitting. We put the tree in the hole and put on the glass bulb.
At the bottom, we drill a hole for the wires.
We insert the cable and fix it with glue.
Through the upper opening, we also pass the cable and connect it with garlands.
We put garlands in the flask.
Then we shove the tree and wind it with garlands.
Carefully connect both parts of the lamp .
Bottom where the chips, glue a soft but dense bottom.
Here’s a street lamp we got.
We insert power.
With the help of the remote control you can control garlands.
Particularly beautifully crafts pot looks at night.
