Cloud Lamp Tutorial!

Since posting my cloud lamp on Instagram,  I have had many questions about how I created these adorable lamps for my classroom. They are so simple to make and they look terrific hanging from the ceiling! I was originally inspired by some color changing clouds I saw at an amazing art installation/experience called Meow Wolf in Santa Fe, NM. I decided that my classroom needed cloud lamps, so I researched a little and decided to give my clouds a try. In my classroom I will have two cloud lamps and three regular clouds that will hang from the ceiling (for these I covered the holes with the Poly-fil before hanging). I have a quick tutorial and affiliate links for the products I used below! If you have any questions feel free to DM me on Instagram or leave a comment below!

Supplies Needed:

1. Paper Lanterns

2. Color Changing Bulbs with Remote- You can choose to use a regular bulb if you do not want the color changing/strobe/flash features.

3.  Poly-fil- 1 bag can make 5 lanterns with plenty left over. 

4. Lantern Cord- I purchased the 20 foot cord to ensure it would be long enough to find a wall socket!

5. Hot glue gun and glue- Use high temperature glue, as it adheres to the lanters more easily than low temperature glue.

Happy Creating!
