Build a Christmas Tree with Junky Lamp Parts

Just when I thought it was safe to put away my stash of lamp parts from my last project, I realized that I had enough parts left over to make one more junky lamp tree.

No valuable or functional lamps were harmed in the making of this tree.

I played around with various parts and finally narrowed it down to the pile you see here. Two of the pieces got a quick paint job so they'd blend in better with the group.

I lined up all the parts in the correct stacking order. There is a method to this madness.

I started stacking 'em up.

Then I topped it off with a cookie cutter star. Just a dab of E6000 holds it in place.

Three reasons why I never pass up cheap, ugly, or broken lamps.

  5. Oh good grief, this one is even prettier than the first two (in a way) - there's something very va-va-voom about it! Love the big cookie cutter star, just perfection.
