Tea Light!

I've been intrigued with teacup lamps lately, so I thought I would try my own.I gathered up some odds and ends at a local thrift store. All of these cost less than $4 total.




Instead of buying a lamp kit for the wiring, I bought a $5 lamp at Habitat for Humanity and took it apart using just the insides.



Not bad for a first attempt!
(Tip if you're thinking of doing this yourself - DON'T try to drill though Stoneware! auughhh!!)
