With so many low-temperature lightbulbs on the market right now, paper lamps are definitely on the rise in practicality and popularity. And, with a little folding, twisting, and cutting, you can make some really fantastically organic shapes that produce really interesting interactions between light and shadow. A great example: This wonderful DIY coral-inspired paper lamp tutorial that Ananda from A Piece of Rainbow shared on Remodelaholic!


I’m definitely inspired by the versatility of this project, and love that it looks fantastic both hanging and on tabletop display.

Feeling inspired? What paper shapes would you use?
