Snowflake Lamps

Are you familiar with these GRONO lamps from IKEA?


They’re $14.99 for the 2 pack. I like them, but wanted to perk them up a bit.

I cut some vinyl with my Silhouette ($100 off through the end of the month using code “CRAP” Winking smile) into snowflake shapes and applied it to the inside of the glass. You could do the outside, but I wanted a little more subtle look.

Here it is turned off:

  1. Gorgeous! And I have those lamps… might have to experiment with them myself :-)

  2. I too have those same lamps and admire them for their simplicity… this is such a beautiful way to "winterize" them! I love that it isn't holiday specific and they can be up for months (b/c I'm one lazy mama, lol)! What a great idea!

    You never cease to amaze me! I love these! Is there any fear of the vinyl getting to hot with the lamp on?

  4. Maddie Lumpkin says:

    What a wonderful idea!

  5. Tara @ Tara Being Tara says:

    They are so pretty – and you can leave them up past Christmas since they're snowflakes!

  6. Those are beautiful, great idea.

  7. Very nice…you are quite creative!

  8. Haha! I had this same idea last night! I like how yours turned out :)

  9. That is SOOOOOOO beautiful!!! No Ikea here, but I want to do this… you've inspired me!!

  10. Love it, I have two of these lamps!

  11. HollowSquirrel says:

    You are awesome. The end.

  12. They look fantastic! Great job!

  13. fan-freaking-tastic, these are so much nicer than the original lamps! What a great idea!

  14. Love these Char! Fun, fun, fun for the winter!

    Looks so pretty!! I agree with your decision to put them on the inside. I think the subtlety adds to the overall result.

    I love this Char! Great job (as usual!)

    Hope you have a great December. I'm sure you'll be busy busy busy!

    oh, and PS…I LOVE Pier 1 myself…my favorite Christmas items there are their ornaments. They're so great! Anyway…keep doing what you're doing (minus the pink eye).
