DIY Twig Lamp

A lamp kit and a sweep through the backyard to collect twigs are all you need for this natural lamp.

Keep this look natural by leaving the twigs as is; add a contemporary flair by spray-painting the twigs before you make the lamp.

Materials & Tools

  • 15-20 twigs (bundle with twine to keep them relatively straight and let dry for a month before using)
  • Three rubber bands
  • Threaded metal rod
  • Twine
  • Crafts glue
  • Scissors
  • Pruner or utility knife
  • Wood round with precut hole in center
  • Electrical lamp kit
  • Felt pads or plastic "buttons"
  • Lampshade


  1. Hold the twigs around the metal rod with rubber bands.
  2. Wrap and glue twine around the twigs; let dry.
  3. Use the pruner to cut the twigs to the desired height; remove the rubber bands.
  4. Glue the twigs to the wood round with crafts glue.
  5. Cut the twig scraps into small pieces and glue them around the base of the twigs.
  6. Install the lamp kit; run the cord through the rod. Apply felt pads to the bottom of the wood round so there's space for the cord under the lamp.
  7. Top with the shade.
