Turn Old Bottles Into Lamps Using Rechargeable LED Corks This next project is one of the most spectacular so far as its visual impact is most definitely guaranteed. The corks from wine bottles are well-known to be great craft supplies in different art projects, but this one find these corks a utility too.

Use a rechargeable LED light so you can use it for a longer period and once attached to the cork, place the light inside the clean wine bottle. DIY Doily Light: Simple Suspended-Sphere Lace Lamp Shade So simple a child could make it – and have fun in the process, too. And the result? A shining example of how light and shadow can work together to brighten up a room. Swedish craftswoman Isabelle Dos started with a simple party-shop balloon, blown up big and wrapped in white lace place settings painted with wallpaper glue. The soaked material sticks readily to the sides of the inflated sphere, overlapping to form a contiguous shell, suspended and left to dry overnight like a plaster cast.

How to Build an Insanely Bright LED Flashlight!: 8 Steps (with Pictures) So, because the LED in this "weapon of mass illumination" draws a lot of power, up to 100 watts (33 volts and 3 amps), it produces an insane amount of heat, so we need a heatsink to keep it cool, the one that I listed in the parts list may seem like overkill, and it is a little overkill (only a little), but so is this whole build. To provide enough power to feed this hungry beast, we will need a powerful battery that is designed for high discharge applications and compact and lightweight, this is a portable flashlight after all (rules out lead acid). The obvious solution to both of these requirements is a Lithium Polymer battery (Li-Po).

Designer Paper Yarn Lamp Citizens of Instructables :), When I was searching for paracord in local market, I was trying to explain this guy at the craft store what I am looking for and I was having a hard time. Guess what he showed me paper yarn, trust me I did not even know what paper yarn is before this instructables. I liked it but that time I was more inclined towards paracord and it was frustrating that I was not able to find it. For the sake of experiment I bought few bunches of paper yarn (Sometimes spending money for no reason gives a strange kind of satisfaction :D) .
