I made this unique lamp from a discarded popcorn maker I found next to a dumpster. After cleaning up the unit, I removed the electrical components and replaced them with a threaded nipple & standard socket. I chose an orange flame bulb to represent the old heating element. This, along with the yellow plastic top guard, gives the lamp a warm orange glow that is perfect at night. Finally, I filled the cavity with clear acrylic jewels, to represent the popcorn. The whole project took only a couple hours, as I luckily had all the parts I needed.
