We used a toddler's toy to make our lamp — one in which a child would insert a big Ping-Pong ball in the top and watch it roll down to the bottom. You can use most any type of plastic, metal or wood toy to make your own lamp.
- drill and 3/8" drill bit
- hole-saw drill bit
- wire strippers
- piece of wood for plug
- thread pipe and a piece of copper pipe that will slide over it
- lamp kit
- light bulb and lampshade
To accommodate the wiring, drill two holes in the toy, one through the top (in our case, it is a smokestack) and one through the back. Feed the wire through the back and up through the top hole.
