Rakenrol lamp!

film reel
18 gauge copper wire
coffee cup lids (8pcs) for the base
bulb receptacle

can you see the actors?

i had a different lamp in mind when i started but i ended up with this one. the hardest thing to do for me was how to support the lamp shade. i didn't know what to do so i just coiled some wire and made it adjustable (because i couldn't make it straight haha!). you can make it upright, or slanted, or even higher or lower. 
on my decoupaged table

the shade is not perfectly shaped because i didn't measure (as usual) but it's part of the charm :) now, i have 11 more DIYs to do for my giveaways. it's a good excuse to practice my craft.
