mojojojogrlnjOctober 15, 2006

okay went yard shopping yesterday....and came to this one and there was a bunch of the old coffee pots you know the enamel and silver kind with the glass perkerlator...when i picked one up noticed it had a cord...and when i turned it around had some kind of poked out star design on the pot...so i bought two...took them home plugged them in and these pots make the cutest little lights that i have ever seen....so now im on a mission to find coffee pots lol (trust me I passed many up that were just a quarter lol) and make these lights for my family for xmas....so just giving you a cute idea for some xmas presents that wouldnt cost alot of money...this of the designs you could punch out on the tin...stars, bells, angels etc...(oh and I paid 5 dollars for both)

Neat! I would do that but I already took a small lamp and shade that I had and sat it inside the very same type of coffee pot a month ago. It's now a nice light in my kitchen on the microwave. I wish I did it a long time ago. :)

A tip....fill the coffee pot with water and freeze..Punch the picture while the ice is still frozen inside...This will keep the pot from denting in when you punch the holes.

That is such a great idea Mojo. I love how it looks in the dark and the top lighting up is just an extra bonus of flair!!!
