What materials do you need?
To create your own DIY Cloud Tulip Light, you will need the following materials:
- DIY Cloud Tulip Light Kit from The Refined Emporium
- Hot glue gun
Step 1: Prepare the lantern frame
Start by assembling the plastic or paper lantern frame according to the manufacturer's instructions. Make sure it is sturdy and ready to be transformed into a beautiful cloud.
Step 2: Shape the cloud
Take the cotton batting or polyester fiberfill and tear it into small pieces. Fluff them up to create fluffy cloud-like shapes. Use the hot glue gun to attach the cotton pieces to the lantern frame, covering it completely. Be generous with the cotton to achieve a full and fluffy cloud appearance.
Step 3: Add the lights
Take the string of LED fairy lights and carefully weave them through the cotton cloud. Make sure the lights are evenly distributed and secure them with small dabs of hot glue if necessary. Leave the end of the string hanging out so you can easily plug it in later.
Step 4: Hang the cloud
Attach a piece of clear fishing line or thread to the top of the cloud. Use a wire or a coat hanger to create a hook or loop to hang the cloud from the ceiling. Make sure it is securely fastened to avoid any accidents.
Step 5: Enjoy your DIY Cloud Tulip Light
Once everything is in place, plug in the fairy lights and watch as your DIY Cloud Tulip Light illuminates the room with a soft and dreamy glow. It's a perfect addition to any bedroom, nursery, or cozy reading corner.
Creating your own DIY Cloud Tulip Light is a fun and creative project that allows you to add a touch of whimsy to your space. Follow these steps and let your imagination soar as you bring a little piece of the sky indoors.
