DIY Concrete Lamp Shade Light

Steph had an idea to create a lamp that was totally made of concrete which included the lamp shade. It was an interesting idea but I couldn't quite grasp the concept. Actually, it wasn't until the lamp was finished and I saw how it was put together that I had the "ahh ha" moment!
With Steph's idea in her head, we set out to find suitable molds for the base and lamp. Target had everything we needed. We picked up a few styles of water in various sizes of bottles for the base and found two flower pots in different sizes that would be perfect in which to cast the shade.
A trip to The Home Depot was all we needed to fill the remainder of our materials list!
This made the cutest little accent lamp! It's heavy and sturdy. The color changing feature makes it a great accessory for a boring little corner in need of a little drama!
What do you think? Would you make this concrete lamp and where would you put it? Let us know in the comments below!

Really creative. My daughter just built a firepit in her backyard, and is making an outdoor area. Would this lamp be suitable for outdoor use? Could it stay outside all the time? Is it heavy?

Hi Gloria! You could probably use this outdoor you would just want to seal the concrete with an outdoor sealer. Also, make sure the LED lights can be used outdoors (the ones we used can). It's about 26lb.

Sorry, it is 12lb!
