She Glues Cotton Wool Onto A Lamp, What She Ends Up With… You’ll Want One!
In today’s day and age, there are a lot of people that like to do things for themselves. This can give a greater sense of satisfaction with something you have in your house. Every time you see it you’ll know that you didn’t buy it at Wal-Mart or Target, you’ll know that you did it all by yourself.
These Do It Yourself (DIY) projects have become quite popular and in most cases they are done at a fraction of the cost of buying the item at a department store. You avoid the 300% or higher markup on it and it’s more fun to do.
This cloud was done in about five hours and it used the most basic of items to complete. The total is around $75 to make and that tells you that it would cost at least $200 in a major chain store.
The cloud can be made with lights inside of it so that it lights up to give it that illuminated look. Underneath it the cloud can easily be made to look like it is raining or even snowing.
For those that like to do things themselves and if you like the looks of this, it can be done pretty easily. In no time at all you’ll have a piece that all of your friends will be amazed at.
