The Adorable Sculpture Lamp You Can Make Out of Old Toys

If you're looking for a fun family project, this easy DIY toy sculpture lamp is a perfect activity you can do with kids. Next time you're going through drawers and thinking about throwing away old toys, make this spectacular lamp instead. Home Made Simple designer and host Jeremiah Brent helps eight-year-old Winston repurpose some of his worn out plastic toys to make a one-of-a-kind lamp for his mom using just a pre-bought lamp, glue gun, paint and the old toys.

First, they quickly paint all of the toys with a coat of white paint (you can choose any color that matches your décor) and let them dry. Next, they carefully place the toys on the base and neck of the lamp in an artfully arranged pattern and hot glue them on. After drying, the lamp is ready to go. This piece will brighten up any room and will be full of unique memories that can be enjoyed every time it's put to use.

Jeremiah Brent is a self-taught designer and furniture builder. What started as a hobby quickly turned into a passionate career. He started his own interior and furniture design business, working with many celebrity and private clients. Looking to incorporate more high fashion into his designs, he started his second firm, Jeremiah Brent Design, a full service interior design firm with locations in Los Angeles and New York City. Becoming a father recently has further inspired his designs and allowed him to recognize even more that connecting the need for function can still be beautiful. Jeremiah began hosting Home Made Simple in its fifth season, consistently coming up with creative and innovative ways to freshen up spaces and create unique, easy pieces perfect for any home.
