DIY: Map Lamp

If you have an armchair explorer in your house (you know the type, they have a whole drawer in a cabinet stuffed with maps and atlases), then I have a perfect project for that special wanderer. Chez Larsson came up with this easy and fun lampshade project that will add some topography to your living room, without putting a dent in your pocketbook.


What You'll Need

  • White lampshade
  • Map
  • Cutting surface, such as cutting board
  • Spray adhesive
  • Scissors or Exacto knife

To find out how to make it,

Here's how to do it, from Chez Larsson:

  1. Measure between the edges of the lampshade and cut a long strip that covers the shade and then some.
  2. Spray permanent spray adhesive onto the back of the map in a well-ventilated area and affix to the outside of the shade, smoothing out any air bubbles with your hands.
  3. Let dry, and enjoy!
