Fortune Teller Pendant Lamp


While at first glance this pendant lamp looks very plain, come a little closer and you'll soon realize that it's actually pretty intricate. Who would have guessed that such a gorgeous lamp could be made from hundreds of origami fortune tellers? The best part about this lantern however, is how the light radiates from it. The numerous facets and angles that each individual fortune teller creates forces the light to be brighter in some areas and darker in others – ultimately creating a beautifully lit pattern.

For those who want this lamp in their very own home, it's not that hard. All you need for this DIY project is a lot of paper, glue, scissors, a paper lantern and a cord kit. It's cheap, fun entertainment! And when it's all done you have a nice lantern that you can show off to your guests.

If you absolutely do not have the time or patience however, you can just as easily head over to Etsy and buy a homemade lantern at the hefty price of $250. There are many other shapes and variations available, as well. So what are you going to do? Make one or buy one?
