The materials that have been used for Mother's Day gifts:

  • 1 vintage colored cardboard cup.
  • A piece of EVA foam of a color similar to the glass.
  • Small lights.
  • Pencil.
  • Craft cutter.
  • Thick wooden stick.
  • Base for the lamp with a thin piece of wood.
  • Silicone heats and its gun.
  • Decorative ribbon with pompoms in a beige tone.
  • Some rope to decorate the base of the lamp.

You can see this manual step by step in the following video:

First step:

We draw hearts and circles on the glass. We cut them out with the craft cutter or a similar cutter.

Second step:

We place the glass upside down and draw its outline on the EVA foam. Then we cut it out.

Third step:

We draw a heart on the EVA foam circle with the pencil. Then we cut it out. We take the circle and stick it to the edge of the glass with the hot silicone.

Fourth step:

We make a small incision at the bottom of the glass and insert a piece of wooden stick.

Fifth step:

We make an incision in the back of the glass. We put the lights in and leave the box with the batteries on the outside. We can fix the box with a little silicone.

Step Six:

We take the wooden base and make an incision the size of the stick. We pour hot silicone and fix the stick inside. We can seal it and fix it much more by adding more silicone. So that the connection between the base and the stick is not noticeable, we knot a little rope around it and glue it.
