Tetris Lamp
I love tetris. I always did. So one day... I made this lamp. And I'm enjoying it ever since.

Since some of you guys asked for a how-to, I digged out some old photos. Hopefully it helps.

And sorry for my english in advance. o_o

  • Step 1

    Decide how big you want your blocks to be.
    Draw every kind you want in your lamp (One of my blocks is shown here) and try to have as many tiles of the same size as possible...

  • Step 2

    Get the tiles you need.

    Glue and/or nail the parts together, just as you drew them.

    I didn't take any pictures during this step :(

    Step 4

    Trace your blocks onto non-burning paper and cut them out.

    Fold the paper so that it fits into the holes and fix it from the inside of your block.

    Step 7

    Divide your fairylights on your blocks and probably fix them from the inside. I used pushpins for that.
