I’ve wanted to make one of these for a long time, but I couldn’t seem to find all the pieces I needed for it…until last week.
I had already purchased a few lamp bases at yard sales, but I couldn’t seem to find any flat plate-like ceiling fixtures for the bowl. Last week we changed out a bad fixture in our kitchen and I decided the bowl-shaped fixture would work just fine.
I positioned the glass fixture upside down on top of the lamp. The decorative nut that held the ceiling fixture in place was used inside the bowl to screw the two pieces together. I also used household cement to help secure it, and caulking to seal it so it could hold water.
I think it will look adorable in a flower bed…if it EVER gets warm enough to plant flowers. Ahem…please ignore that I said that when I am complaining about 100+ degree temperatures in a couple of months.
