Ikea Hack | LAMPAN x Humpty Dumpty

My second Ikea hack project after the Toddler Learning Tower!

I have this LAMPAN table lamp from Ikea in Nana’s room for two years and I love that its lightweight but I just feel it’s sort of too white for a nursery and I always want to decorate it with something.

So when I sketched these Humpty Dumpties that I posted on my Instagram for Nana in one of our family dinners I thought, how about putting these cute Humpty Dumpties on the lamp!!

Steps:

  1. Get the shape of the table lamp by wrapping the lamp shade with a piece of A3 paper to outline the shape;
  2. Sketch the humpty dumpty within the lamp shade’s outline (I have seen people sketching on iPad which can be used directly as digital output);
  3. Scan the drawing with scanner and outline it with a brush in Photoshop;
  4. Export the drawing as PNG;
  5. Upload the PNG file to Cricut Design Space, load the vinyl and let Cricut do the cutting;
  6. Weed the unnecessary parts from the cut out;
  7. Transfer the cutout to the lamp shade using transfer paper.

Materials:

  • Ikea LAMPAN Table Lamp 
  • Cricut Vinyl (Cocoa)
  • Cricut Transfer sheet

Tools:

  • Pen & Paper (For sketching)
  • Scanner
  • Photoshop
  • Cricut Explorer Air 2
  • Weeding Tool

Love how fast my Cricut made all these cutout for me! Sit back, relax, have a sip of coffee and it’s done!!
