At first glance this may look like an ordinary, store bought, spherical pendant light - but upon closer inspection one will notice it's unique composition. This entire sphere is in fact made from white plastic beer cups, glued together with a glue gun!
Here's some photos of Pelle, my husband, putting the whole thing together.
At about 1/4 complete, the curve of the sphere begins to show.
Pelle used about 150 cups to make the sphere. As plastic cups are extremely inexpensive, we ended up only spending around $18.00 on this project.
Here is the final product. Pelle added a dimmer switch to the equation and now we have a much nicer light above our bed, and it only cost us $18.00!
On another note, I suppose one could also create their own light sphere using only recycled cups; that is if one had access to the right kinds of recycled materials. Perhaps that would be a good project to undertake after a most excellent keg party. Note to self.
