I have always wanted to make this string ball lamp and decided to have a go on a sunny afternoon on our balcony. I mixed the PVA glue with water and began wrapping the balloon, glue went everywhere and it took about 1 hour to complete. I made the basic popsicle stand and fitted it with a standard light fitting. It looks great in our study room.

This craft came about because one of my students made a balloon paper măché shade in an art class. She made it so well I thought I would design a lamp stand for her, and this is what I came up with. We both made a lamp stand from popsicle sticks and I made the electrical fittings for a 15W bulb. When she switched it on she was amazed at her work. The pictures here are my lamp shade I made, I painted it yellow and red for a lovely warm glow. My wife did a waldorf colour scheme.
