Picture of DIY Giant Cloud Lamp
Complete Pic - LED.jpg

I have always been a fan of decorating with lights, whether it was for my room, during holidays, or any other appropriate place. The soft glow of the lights gives an environment a more aesthetic feel, and overall I find it relaxing. To spice things up a bit, I decided to create a giant cloud lamp because it gives an extra dreamy feel to a room, and it's a fun project to do in just a couple of easy steps.You can turn simple materials into one big ball of light! All in all, this DIY is an easy to make project to do in your free time.

I tried two different types of lights for this project (soft lights and LED programmable lights) and they both turned out great! Notice the difference in color and effect. Decide what's more for your taste.

For this specific tutorial, I will go through a step by step process using soft colored christmas lights.

Step 1: Materials and Tools
