Turn pudding pots into a modern lightshade

A couple of weeks ago, I was talking about turning EVA foam into chairs, footstools and wall hangings, as professional artist Carla Tennenbaum did.

Today, I'm inspired by crafter Kianee, who made a new sixties-style lampshade from discarded pudding pots - and the end result looks as funky as anything you would see in a trendy New York boutique. (And yes, it can be safely used with a bulb - a low-energy one is apparently best!).


If you're inspired to make one of your own, choose the pudding or yogurt you use with care: the lamp will only look pretty if the pots are a nice design! Then simply string them together using little metal rings and attach to a lampshade ring. The only downside is you'll have to eat a lot of pudding to get the lamp of your dreams...
