Spoon lamp idea!

I got this idea since I started the DIY: Kitchen unit project.


IDEA: Make kitchen lamp shade from spoons or other kitchen related items. After spending hours by generating ideas in my head I quit doing that. Drive to the shop and check the prices of spoons. And I mean really cheap spoons – Made in China.


I found 12 spoons for 1.89 euro! Bargain! Made in China of course and if I wanted to use them “as spoons” I would be rather upset. Terrible quality and material! But for my bright idea – perfect!


So – went back home and this is what I end up… and “Yes!” I had “Edison” bulb at home. I like how it turned out. Now I need to find the solution how to fix spoons in place.Β That black tape is temporary … or not!?:) The cheapest light bulb socket is plastic and spoons are metal.Β  I used hot glue, cause it fills up all the spaces between spoons and socket. But it won’t glue metal very well.

Any other suggestions!?

    1. I love that Edison looking bulb too! I hope to make 5 such lamps for my “new” (doesn’t feel new anymore) / “unfinished” (yup, still couldn’t start) kitchen!


  1. The filler used to repair car panels should work. It will certainly stick well to metal and plastic. Of course the β€˜sticky’ component is two part epoxy but that alone would be too costly to fill the spaces. You must have car panel filler paste in Latvia I think
