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.
