Snow, wax, paper, tin can, and pumpkin luminaries. I have made those and every other kind out there. At least I thought I had. Then I found Crafts By Amanda and these ones made from epsom salts. Neat-o. Now I have to make these ones before I can call myself an expert. I’m excited to try!

This is a terrific example of how to turn some ordinary boring things, headed for the garbage, into useful designer pieces. This light looks so modern and fancy! It’s hard to believe it is made from plastic spoons and a plastic bottle. Well believe it!

Oh my heart! This completely did it in. This dad put all other nurseries to shame with his twinkling starlight ceiling. I have some stick on stars for my ceiling but these ones, featured over at Diply, are nothing like those. This little babe is going to be looking up at 596 fiber optic stars that glow bright and dim out when its bed time. I can’t get over how lucky this little guy is.

I’m so excited to feature Trends & Ideas! They have the most amazing roundup of lighting DIYs and I love ‘em! Some lights are upcycled appliances and trinkets. Others are straight from the recycle bin. There are vintage and modern designs here; something for everyone. My fav would have to be the spoons. No, the cheese graters. No, the light bulbs. Wait… I just don’t know! They are all so great!

I love mason jars and I love solar powered lights. That’s probably why I am in love with Put It In A Jar and their wonderful lights. It is brilliantly easy and affordable.

I just happened to stumble across this awesome project from Whit & Whitle and I’m definitely going to be repurposing my leftover wine bottles into this. It would be so fun to try with different colored light and bottle combinations; it would be a festive rainbow of decorations. What do you think? Pretty great, right?!

Check out this terrific tutorial from Ms Dawn! What are your thoughts on oil candles? I hadn’t given them much before this. A few ounces of oil will burn for hours. Useful and beautiful! Any glass jar or bottle will work, but I love mason jars and so do these guys. There are a lot of pics to get you inspired for any season and event. Save your pennies and make your own oil candles!

This lamp, designed by Richard Clarkson, is amazing! Isn’t technology great? It reproduces the sounds and flashing lightning of a real storm (but without the rain and inclement weather). It will make the perfect personal storm based on your movements. There is also a bluetooth speaker so you can play your own tunes though it. The schematics have been made open so anyone brave enough to accept the challenge can improve on the design. $3,360 for this one and another version of this lamp (one that isn’t interactive) is $960. Regardless of the prices, they are so cool!
Here it is…
