Don’t pass up those lamp bases! – Some Lamp Base Crafts

Large, fancy, lamp base, bought at a yard sale for a dollar, now used as a candle stand. Never pass up a pretty lamp base!

Are you buying old lamp bases when you see them? I do love me a pretty lamp base. I’ve been known to buy an ugly lamp just for the base. But I’ve also been lucky enough to find some bases without the lamps. Here are a few lamp base crafts to get you inspired.

My favorite of all my lamp base finds. Got it at a regular ol’ yard sale for a dollar, if memory serves.

Even the smaller, not quite so fancy lamp bases have uses:

  1. I love what you came up with. Do you use a saw to get the base to that size or did it come apart?

  2. I love vintage lamps -we have waymore than we need -40’s and 50 retro seem to be what I buy.

  3. What a fabulous idea for those old lamp bases. I love the idea of using a group of them for those big pillar candles. I also like the one you used as a base for a cloche. Thank you for stopping by and saying Hello and Here’s hoping you have a fabulous week.

  4. What a wonderful idea!
    I have quite a few vintage lamp bases, I think I’m going to give this a try.

    Have a wonderful week!
    Hugs,
