  • pufffdragon

    This was cool. Way better than that tampon slipper thing. Now to go to MC Donald's to get me some spoons.

    shit looks ghetto

      Its made from a water bottle, a light bulb and a bunch of plastic spoons. I tend to think that was the point.

    recycling is awesome using something in a complete opposite way for what it is intended this is art…so it is cool….. 🙂

    Mildly cool with the lights underneath on, absolutely hideous with the lights underneath off

      tHANKS…. wouldn't want to go to all that trouble for an ugly light…plastic is plastic after all…sigh

      your boobs can build chandeliers?

  • top dog

    The shit worked, thats all that matters. The only problem is, you can't leave the light on for too long, the plastic will melt.

      …maybe that's why they use an energy saving light bulb…

    i attached a diesel generator to mine, to counteract any enviroments i may have saved. Oh and it smokes something fierce when it catches fire, use in a well ventalated room.

      oh and the 50 plastic handles you remove will make a great addition to your local landfill.

  • CPO_Mendez

    Not too shabby. Must find a way to best it with the remaining spoon handles…

    This was the begining of aperture science, right before they made Shower courtains they made chandeliers(#5-6)

  • Dug

    I think they sell these for $40 at IKEA…

    how to attach the spoons to the bottles ……does anyone knw?????

  • Claudia

    with a glue gun

    If it smokes you can use a LED light, they don't produce a lot of heat. Attach a battery instead and string and it can be hung anywhere.

  • hungup1968

    well, as for the light source and it heating up, i'm assuming you use a cold lamp, or a very low wattage florecent one.The LED light idea is very good also.

    You know, if you don't like something, then move on with your life. There is no need for rude comments. They are just unnecessary. That's what is wrong with the world today, people have no censor on their mouths or thoughts any more. Not everything you think, must be said outloud or typed. Learn respect or you will never receive respect.

  • Launib

    Use LED lights to reduce the amount of heat produced. It is definitely more for ambiance rather than functional reading light! If using an incandescent bulb, nothing more than a 15 watt for sure! Love recycling and repurposing! Kinda cute it a kitschy kind of way! 🙂

  • jen

    this may work as a perfect night light for the nursery 🙂
