These handmade glistening rope lamps by Korean blogger Hobby Design were inspire by the subtlety and ambiance of a sunrise. The step-by-step pictorial instructions on the blog are easy to follow. Not to mention, the instructive photos themselves are well lit and well composed minimalistic photos.
These rope lamps are easy to make: wrap a strand of rope around a heat-proof vinyl lampshade, using a hot glue gun to keep the rope in place.
You can choose to dye the rope different colors. The creator chose black, which contrasts nicely with the bright light shining through the cracks of the ropes.
The rope gives a more textured look to the sleep shape of the lampshade. These lamps would make a great gift idea because they are guaranteed one-of-a-kind; DIY is a crafty and fulfilling afternoon activity.
