The challenge was to create something with items found at a dollar store. I took a stroll through Dollar Tree and saw a few items but didn't really get inspired until i saw this post from Kat's Iron Craft site, http://www.justcraftyenough.com/2012/03/project-city-lights-lampshade/ , and the link to something she saw in Sweden here, http://www.justcraftyenough.com/2011/06/cross-stitch-lamps/ .
Thanks, Kat, for the cool inspiration!
So here's my challenge entry with items found for a dollar each: A miniature camera tri-pod, a USB computer light, a USB extension cord, and a wire mesh pencil cup!
It kind of has a cool industrial feel to it, don't ya think!? And it is so super easy. The USB computer light cable is stiff, so you just wrap it around the tri-pod and then adjust it to go up and then point down at what ever height you want. And then just balance the cup on top and add a bit of tape underneath. And of course, I had to add a bit of stitching to the cup after seeing the inspiration linked above!!!
