DIY: Tree Branch Lamp

These lamps are gorgeous! When I get a free weekend, I'll be making one of my own! Here's how I would break this down into a simple DIY project.



You will need

1. A Birch Branch

2. A wooden disc to use as a stand for the lamp * make sure that your disc is large enough to support your lamp, depending upon how tall your birch branch is. These wooden circles can usually be found at your local craft store or Home Depot.


3. Light bulb and cord can be found at any home improvement store such as, Home Depot, Lowe's, ACE Hardware etc.


4. Lamp Shade. Pick your style!

5. Assembling Tools

Power drill and screw driver, drill and screw bits, wood glue and screws.



 
Have fun my friends! Let me know if you make one of your own. I would love to see pictures!

  1. I love this DIY,I'm thinking it would be a perfect Christmas gift! Did you screw the birch branches to the wooden disk? And how did you keep the light bulb and lamp shade in place? Just want to make sure I have it sturdy! Thank you for the inspiration!

  4. I think the lamp shade just sits on top of the bulb. It's like a clamp made specifically for this. I have some lamp shades that do this. Unfortunately they only clamp on the old incandescent (round) bulbs like the one in the picture.
