How To: Mod An IKEA Lamp Into An Exploding Death Star Lamp

January 17, 2017


This is the exploding Death Star lamp modded from an IKEA PS 2014 pendant lamp by Instructable user MariaK64. You can follow a tutorial she made HERE or HERE. Basically it involves buying an IKEA PS 2014 pendant lamp, then masking and painting it to look like the Death Star (the lamp already expands like that with the pull of its string). Simple enough. So simple I think I might even be able to do it. "Stop eating the paint." But my mom forgot to pack me a lunch!

Keep going for a couple closeups and a video for the full effect.





Thanks to hairless, who still buys hairspray for old times' sake.

  • The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of Ikea.

    Hah I wanted to buy one of these and make Unicron from the old 80s Transformers movie from it.

    My parents have one of these, but its white with the internal moving parts in bright orange. I will make it into a golfbal before doing this.

    The video should have had the sound from the movie when they blew it up.

  • I saw that lamp and thought the same thing LOL
