I love string lights. They make any room look magical when the lights are off. I didn’t think it could get any better, but then I found these cloud lamps.
With some stuffing, some lanterns, string lights, and a few other cheap materials, you can have a little thunder storm in your room– just without the rain
Check out the step by step tutorial to see how easy it is to make this awesome DIY for your room.
Instructions for Making A Cloud Light:
Supplies You Will Need:
- 6 Paper Lanterns (but you can choose to use less or more lanterns)
- String Lights
- Fishing Line
- Wooden Dowel
- Batting/Polyfill Stuffing
- 2 Cup Hooks (to hang from ceiling)
- Glue Gun
Take your glue gun and glue batting onto the paper lanterns. Each lantern will make one of your clouds.
Cut fishing line to the length you would like to hang the clouds from the ceiling. You will need to cut two pieces, one for each side of the dowel. Tie fishing line to both ends of your dowel.
You may want to measure the length of both after you have tied them to make sure the measurements are the same. Trim them to match, if necessary.
You will need to cut more pieces of fishing line to hang the lanterns and string lights. Cut one piece for each lantern and attach to the dowel.
Tie the hanging ends of your line to the tops of your lanterns to hang your DIY clouds one by one. Your cool room decor is almost done!
Hang each lantern so that your clouds look something like this.
Hang your string lights and plug them in. You can connect all the strings together so you only have to plug one of them into the wall.
That’s it, you’re done! I love how these cloud lamps look, and once you finish yours, I know you’ll love it too.
