Cup dé light: Tutorial

We were trying to make some decorative with series lights & paper cups and came up with this.
Paper cups used for coffee, tea or water can be very easily recycled to make an eco-friendly exotic lamp.
I am just loving the ambiance light this lamp creates in our drawing room.


Every point where one layer of the cup flower comes in contact with the other layer is glued.
It takes some time for layers to get stuck with each other, so its better to finish sticking first 2 layers and then adding the 3rd one.
The red dots shown here are the glued points.

  1. Hello Mauverchuiqui. The string had almost 100 bulb/LEDs separated by a distance of 15-20 c.m.
    You can use more of less number of cups depending on the no. of bulbs.
