With Children’s Day coming next, I wanted to be prepared and gift the little ones in my life with something cute. So I let my inner child loose today on Pinterest and Etsy. It is impossible not to get lost in awe in the colorful universe of decor ideas for kids’ rooms. In this month’s inspirational round-up we look at 17 super cute fun DIY lamps to brighten up a kid's room inspired by animals, fairytales, and superheroes. 

One of the easiest home decor projects to take on is crafting (or updating) a lamp. It can also be one a budget-friendly idea that can actually keep up with your kid growing up because lampshades are easy to customize. Table, pendant and even floor lamps can take new themes as your kids develop their personalities, discover new fairy tales and superheroes or have an accomplishment.

Even if you’re on a tight budget, making a lamp is not going to cost you an arm and a leg. In fact, with a little money and a lot of creativity, you can still brighten up your kid’s room. The tiniest touches can make a difference in adding personality to a room. 


Here we go, 17 fun DIY lamps to brighten up a kid’s room.


Lamp Theme: Animals

Kids and animals have a special connection. I grew up with 2 dogs and a cat and I cherish that childhood so much. They were my friends and we would go on adventures together, sleep together and sometimes, we even ate together. One of the easiest ways to integrate your little one's love for animals is a lamp.

The fastest way to create an animal themed lamp is to make a pendant lamp. Find your favorite fabric design, get a drumshade ring set, adhesive styrene, glue and wiring for hanging lights. You can use a simple colorful fabric print of an owl or of all the animals in the jungle. If you want to make your own, check out our drum shade tutorial here.

    My name is Natasha Thompson from the USA/Texas.. Am so overwhelmed with gratitude to let the world know how Dr Kachi, the great spell caster changed my life for good. It all started when I lost my job and I was down financially and emotionally because I couldn’t be able provide for my two kids and staying home all day Jobless it’s not easy until I was checking on the internet when I saw a series of testimonies hearing people winning the Powerball lottery, I didn’t believed, but being poor no job you have no option. I gave it a try and I contacted Dr Kachi who told me what i have to do before I can become a big lottery winner and I accepted. He made special prayers for me in his temple and gave me the required numbers to play the lottery game and when I used the numbers to play it, I won a massive $344.6 million Powerball jackpot. I was so happy and I choose to review my winning in any platform, I would love other people to seek help from Dr Kachi through Text and Call: +1 (209) 893-8075 or email drkachispellcast@gmail.com by his website: https://drkachispellcaster.wixsite.com/my-site

    I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga. Well, his email is odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him
