Mason Jar Oil Candles

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!

 Richard Clarkson Thunderstorm Lamp

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!

creative spoon chandelier

Found the above serving spoon chandelier on facebook and wanted to make sure you guys saw it here as well. We have featured a lot of different creative lighting but what makes this unique is the clear/colored handles that create a colored light pattern. How fun!

There’s no specific tutorial for the above chandelier. I also could not find those exact serving spoons on amazon. If any of you guys know where to locate clear colored spoons like that. Please let us know!

In the mean time… here’s a tutorial you can modify from Apartment Therapy to get the job done…

I absolutely love the rustic look of birch bark for some reason. I am not quite sure what it is but it just makes me think of alpine meadows surrounded by waving golden leafed birch trees. This featured project is brought to you by the Oleander + Palm blog! Make sure to head over to their blog so you can get the details on how to make these yourself.
