Plafones for lamps do it yourself

    We create our home yourself. And how comfortable it will be cozy depends on us. Even if you are temporary home housing, you can make it cozy without global costs. The main thing in this business is to put the soul. But by inducting the walls and windows of the apartment, you can not leave a naked hanging from the ceiling a lone light bulb. Let’s think about how to make lamps do it yourself.

    Advantages of homemade plafones

    The need for Hand Made lamps is dictated by different circumstances: someone could not choose a chandelier to the updated interior, someone has a difficult monetary situation, and someone feels the need to decorate their homes.

    Advantages of homemade ceiling:

    • independence from the store assortment;
    • low-budget;
    • self-realization;
    • Uniqueness (exclusivity);
    • originality;
    • availability of material for work.


    Help decide on the choice of material for the lamp you should the selected concept. What is your room, what lamps here are suitable where they will be (on the wall, ceiling, floor)? At the same time, absolutely different things can perform material for the ceiling: threads and veneer, bottles and branches, paper and pelvis, cup and lace, wire and disposable spoons, fabric and beads. From the frame and girlfriend, you can make real beauty.

    Plafof from lace

    For its manufacture, it will take about 10 knitted identical or different napkins of one or more colors (optional), balloon, wallpaper glue and container for it, brush, threads, bulb, light bulb, lamp, oilcloth or litter newspapers. The exact amount of napkins depends on their size and size of the ball.

    Sequence of our actions:

    • Divide the wallpaper glue (one pack should be enough).
    • Inflate the ball, tie it.
    • Tie it in such a way that it is about you before your eyes or below. For example, on the clothes rope or stepladder.
    • On the litter, spread one napkin and absorb her glue.
    • Napkin gently stick to the ball.
    • Squeeze the following napkin and stick it so that one napkin is a little bit of each other.

    • Stick all the napkins, slightly connecting each other.
    • Leave the bottom with a small hole without a napkin, to later you could install the cartridge and light bulb.
    • Your ball should dry about a day.
    • After a day, making sure that the glue is trying completely, pinched the ball and remove it from the ceiling.
    • If you want to give a lamp another color, before piercing the ball, paint the napkins with acrylic paints and leave again to be dried.
    • Through the center of the napkins at the top point of the ceiling, hold the electrical wire to which the cartridge will be connected later. Attention! Do not forget to turn off the power supply!
    • Install the patron.
    • Screw the light bulb.

    If you install such a plastic on the already hanging cartridge, then you can enroll as follows:

    • At the top point of the ceiling, leave a circle with a diameter of about 10 cm;
    • On the cartridge hang a circle of cardboard to tone with napkins with a diameter of about 15 cm;
    • Gently skip the cardboard inside the ceiling and secure them with each other in the stapler or double-sided scotch.

    Plastic bottle

    Most likely, no one will call, how many options for plastics from plastic bottles exists. But the principles of use are two: a bottle decorated with other materials or from the bottle is cut out elements for decorating.

    To implement the first principle, we will need a three- or five-liter bottle. Her neck will be on the cartridge, and the bottom need to cut off. If a bottle of colored plastic, then the simplest chandelier for a simple country house is ready. But the plastic can be coloring with drawings, glue with liquid nails small elements of the type of buttons, pieces of the mirror, seashells. Either cover the acrylic paint of the same color, and on top of apply an uneven layer of paint of another color with comb. In a more complex embodiment, plastic disposable spoons without cuttings in the form of scales are pasted throughout the bottle.

    Such a ceiling will be harmonious for retro style.

    To embody the idea of ​​the second principle you need bottles of any size, but different colors. Cut from them any figures: leaves, flowers, geometry. The main thing is that there were a lot of them. Plaffon will need a frame in the form of rings from a wire. Different levels of frames Connect a vertically positioned wire. Using a fishing line or thin wire, touch the framework of a huge amount of carved figures. They can fit tightly to the frame or hang out freely.

    Paper plafof

    Cardboard, rice paper, self-adhesive, corrugated – which paper is not used for homemade beams. For Modern Style, we offer you to make a plander from multicolored cardboard ribbons. Pick up colors. Prepare bandwidth 2-4 cm, stapler or good glue. Arbitrarily, selling stripes in each other, keep them in such a way as if you have a lump of remnants of different threads in your hands. It should not be dense to not interfere with the light bulb.

    Size – at your discretion. Slightly spreading the bands can easily hang ball on the cartridge.

    Use the energy saving lamp – it is heated less and is more secure.


    To make a plander of wood, you need to choose a suitable snag or branches and process them properly. In the case of a vine – practically any, with stepsing and even dry leaves. Such a ceiling can be wall-mounted, and outdoor, and ceiling. For him, you need a metal frame of any form, through which the sprigs will be skipped. When the ceiling will be ready, cover it with furniture varnish – it will be very beautiful.

    How to make threads and ball?

    One of the easiest, but original ideas – a plaffard from threads wound on a balloon. We need threads (wool, twine, thick cotton), PVA glue, brush, air balloon, vaseline.

    Further everything is easy:

    • Inflate the ball. Than he is more – the more your plander will be. More familiar option – round ball, but who said it is necessary? Perhaps your chandelier will be from three oblong plafones.
    • If your campfone has the lower part will be open, then lift the border on the ball for further winding.
    • In order to subsequently, the ball is easily disconnected from the threads, dear it with a bruster of vaseline.
    • As the ball winds, sculpt them with glue, layer behind the layer. Belt do not spare.
    • The more layers – the stronger the design. Try using threads of different textures, wind them in different directions.
    • Leave to dry your chandelier.
    • After about 24 hours, push the ball and remove it from the aboire.
    • Gently cut the hole for the cartridge.
    • Insert the light bulb – the plane is ready.
    • If it is plain, then it can be decorated with artificial flowers, air butterflies or other solid elements.



    Plafond for a standing lamp: master class

    Such a lamp is not only in sight, but also in the touch field.

    To create a pleasant atmosphere, make a floor lamp soft:

    1. Choose a boa or a fringe with flimsy threads of one or more colors.
    2. On the old plander glue a boa or fringe strictly around the circumference, turning around the ceiling around several times.
    3. Color material can be decorated not only in a circle, but also chaotic, stains.
    4. Optionally, you can reap the leg of the lamp and the base itself.

    The design itself will be a volume, not requiring additional elements.

    We do for a wall model

    It looks wonderful on the wall lamp-house. It can be absolutely different model. But if you install such a lamp in the child’s room, put on the door of the house, from where there is a light, your favorite baby toy (for security – not fabric and away from the light bulb).

    No less interesting figures from dense materials (cat, flower, month), planted on the frame. Light is not through the figure, but from under it, scattering ray. As a rule, scaves are used precisely to muffled light, it means that any opaque models will be appropriate here.



    Handmade options for street lighting

    Speaking about street lighting, we mean territory in front of a private house or cottage. Although, if you live in a multi-storey building, where people carefully refer to what is in the yard, these ideas can come up and you.

    Lighting the territory in front of the house can be:

    • facade when the lamps are attached on the walls of the house and veranda;

But turn on – off inconvenient. Try to hind the lamps on solar panels. In the evening they will independently lit.

    Take on the trees and shrubs LED ribbons, driven from the mains, in the evening you will find yourself in a magical fairy tale.
