A cool DIY compact flourescent light for your house

I've been looking for some cool lighting for a long time, and then I saw this awesome do-it-yourself light! All you need to build this is:
-a used translucent plastic container
-a CFL bulb
-a bulb fitting with plug
-a sharp Stanley knife

Here are some directions:

If you find a strong enough container, you can make it into a seat or table or something. Nice!


  1. I wonder. Is this lamp safe? Will it get too hot and burn?

  2. Good question! No, compact flourescent bulbs do not get as hot as regular bulbs. Just make sure the light does not touch the plastic and you should be fine!
