Here’s a fun little project that’s actually pretty unique, and will add some flare to your room thanks in part to TiffyQuake. Now, you might have seen the article we featured here a few months ago about the cloud lamp that creates an incredible thunderstorm inside your bedroom, but as you can imagine it’s pretty expensive…. roughly $3,000. Which is probably something most people wouldn’t be able to splurge on… so we found this alternative.

You can always vary it up if you want something different, but here’s what you’ll need: Cotton batting / Paper lanterns / Wooden dowel / Fishing line or string / Hot glue gun / Battery-powered LED lights / Screw hook

Different sizes of paper lanterns

1

Hot glue gun with sticks

2

Set of LED curtain lights

3

Clear string or fishing line

4

Cotton batting

5

Use the glue gun to apply the hot glue on the paper lantern… then start attaching the cotton

6

Using your wooden dowel, tie the string or fishing line around it

7

Hook one end to a hook in the ceiling / Do the same with the other end

8

Tie each ball individually and adjust the length as needed

9

Once you get your desired height, just keep adding your paper lanterns

Next, pull your LED lights through the base of the cloud

Plug it in and…….

WaaLa!
