Lamp from a Creamer Container

One more flower pin.  I am so proud of her!  Not bad for an eleven year old.
A flower pin.
A Three Finger Ring
This is a purse she designed and sewed all by herself, with a flower pin she made her self.
Maddy is quite a little crafter, this scarf is another item she has made.
This is what it looked like painted, and open, ready to wire and pour the pebbles in.
Granddad helped her do the wiring.
I used a soldering iron to burn the holes in the top and down at the bottom for the cord.Then Maddy weighted the bottom down with some pebbles she poured inside.
Her Granddad picked up a light kit for her.
This is my beautiful granddaughter who is the genius behind this project.  We were sitting at the dinner table and we had an empty creamer container, and she was looking at it and said this would make a cute lamp!  I had her use some plastic paints and some zebra duct tape to decorate it. 


This is the finished lamp, she is going to use it in her bedroom.  We are still going to work on that shade, I think we will recover it with some zebra print fabric.


  1. Oh Maddie I love this. You should make some and sell them. I know I would buy one!! You know me and zebra stripes I can't get enough of them :0) you did a great job and you must get your brilliant craft ideas from Gram.

    Love you, Aunt Meggie
