  • How to make a recycled light. Book Pages Light Fixture Mabober - Step 1
    Step 1

    so basically, you grab an old book, or news paper clippings, or pages from a magazine, whatever you'd like.

  • Step 2

    then you cut the pages however you like. then you laminate the pages. i didnt really want to spend all the money for the laminator paper stuff, so i just taped both sides with clear packaging tape. =)
    then you hole punch them. you can play around with the placement of the hole.
    then you can either use paper clips, or ornament hooks to attach them together

  • Step 3

    in the book, he taped the whole thing to a light fixture on his ceiling. but i dont have anything like that. so i had to make some contraption to hang it =)

  • Step 4

    then i just taped the tops the to wooden dowels.
