We all have many old and unused items lying around in our homes or garages waiting to be thrown away. You might feel guilty to get rid of them but you couldn’t figure out how to use them. The wiring of this whimsical Teapot Lamp doesn’t require any drilling, because the cord runs behind the lamp instead of through it. Keep the cord flush against the base with a few pieces of electrical tape, and then position the lamp against a wall.
Step 1: Collecting supplies.
You will need teapots, teacups, saucers, odd little ceramic things, a lamp kit, Amaco self-hardening clay, a glue, light bulb and lamp shade.
Step 2: Organize.
To create a balanced arrangement chose components that would form a pyramid — with large, heavy items on the bottom (like an overturned mixing bowl) and lighter teacups up top.
Step 3: Attach Hardware
Fill the top cup, a demitasse (hidden under the shade, right. While the clay was still wet, press in a socket-and-cord unit from Ikea and a harp from Lowe’s, an inch deep. Then let the clay harden for 24 hours.
Step 4: Assemble
.. and Teapot Lamp is finish!
