Merry Christmas to all!
As we celebrate the season with a festive story lamp, we wanted to find out what you would like to see us build, so we reached out to our readers.
It was our first ever Christmas story light project, and it’s a fantastic way to celebrate Christmas.
We started off with a simple Christmas story in a lamp post and have since expanded it into a full story lamp.
Here’s how it went: We had a basic idea of what we wanted the lamp to look like, and we knew we wanted it to be very simple and easy to build.
We decided to make it light up with an LED light, which we sourced for a few reasons: First, we have two Christmas lights that are about the same size, and our lamps are about 30cm long, so if you can use the same sized light for one lamp and a different one for the other, it makes the lamp look a lot smaller and simpler.
Second, we didn’t want to have to go to the trouble of mounting the light.
We knew that the lights needed to look neat and tidy, so a single light would be more of a pain than the lights would need to be mounted separately.
Third, we knew that we wanted our lamps to look nice and dark, so that’s why we decided to use LED lighting for the light source.
LEDs are the perfect choice for Christmas lights because they’re low-cost, and they are fairly efficient compared to other types of lighting.
Finally, and most importantly, we were looking for something that we could easily assemble, which was something we could quickly and easily take apart and replace.
The lamps are assembled and tested at home, which gives us an advantage in the project, as we don’t have to worry about replacing parts and finding parts that are broken.
Our Christmas story Lamp is a complete package, and I can’t wait to see how it turns out.
