This DIY cow lamp is a cute way to recycle and create a fun night light. This is a sponsored post with StyleTech Craft Vinyl.
Several years ago I created a post about fun ways to recycle plastic bottles. One of the most clicked on links in that post is for Bessie Bottlelamp, an adorable cow light made using a bottle. Unfortunately, that link is dead and I can’t find the original project anywhere. I always wanted to make my own DIY cow lamp, and since so many other people liked it I thought I’d share how I made it!
DIY Cow Lamp Supplies
- Plastic container (I used a Canola Oil bottle)
- StyleTechCraft Glossy Vinyl in black, white, and pink
- Battery Operated Light
- Plastic sheet
- Faux Fur
- Wood Peg Doll
- Craft Knife
- Black and White Paint
- Bessie Bottle Light SVG Cut Files
I created a short video so you can see how easy this project is to make.
Here is a brief summary of the steps:
- Clean the plastic bottle well and remove all the labels. Let it dry completely.
- Paint the wood dolls to make the legs and hooves. Use white paint on the long part and paint the round part black.
- Trace the light onto the bottom of the cow/container and cut out the circle with a craft knife.
- Use the template to cut the vinyl. Weed the vinyl and attach to the plastic container.
- Make a hole in the wood pegs and the plastic container. Stick a thumbtack in the hole and push it into the wood peg.
- Glue the fur trim onto the handle, and make a tail to glue on to the end.
Click on the light and your DIY cow lamp lights up! This is such a fun night light. My kids all giggled when they saw it! Have fun crafting and creating with recycled plastic containers and vinyl!
