This was once an ordinary large vase.
After a little work it became a very versatile lamp.
Especially for seasonal decorating. 

I started with an ordinary large vase.
I forgot to take a picture of the vase so I found this image.

 You need lamp parts, which you can get at Lowes and
also a wooden square to fit the bottom of the vase.

I already had odds and ends of lamp parts
which were different finishes so
I spray painted everything silver including the wooden square.

I then attached everything to the wooden square
 and epoxy it all to the bottom of the vase.

This is it clear and empty.

I eventually put a white shade on it
and in this photo it's filled with a little birdhouse.
 Those are some good looking cords aren't they. Sorry.

Here I've filled it full of pumpkins for fall.
One of my favorite things to fill it with.
Isn't it pretty.

This one is filled with a small piece of pottery
that I filled with painted twigs and a little bird.
This is a great one to use for spring and summer.

And finally filled with Christmas balls
for the Christmas Holiday season.
Sometime I use multi colored balls,
but this year I used silver and blue.

Hope you have fun making one too.
