Daddy Craft - Dragon Light

So the little one's been without a design on his IKEA wall lamp ever since he went crazy on it 8 months ago and ripped the cover off and into little pieces. He's talked about wanting a new cover for the lampshade from time to time, but the opportunity never presented itself.

Until last week.

Game of Thrones season 3 came out on DVD with its typical many-piece ridiculous slipcase. As I slipped off the outermost slipcase, inspiration struck.

I pulled apart the binding and flattened the edges, trimming them to fit the light.

Then I folded the edges around the lampshade.

And carefully slid the shade back into the grove and screwed the whole thing back together.

Viola! Daddy craft done in less than ten minutes.

And just in time, for I hear winter is coming (back again) this weekend.
