Who knew concrete and cement decor could be so, well, pretty? I didn’t know until I started making it myself. Another awesome aspect is the cost of these gifts–I calculated my cement tealight candle holders to be about 50 cents each. That’s $0.50 USD! So if you are looking for stunning, unique, easy-to-make, inexpensive gifts for the holiday season (or any season) roll up your sleeves and take a look.
In this post, I’ll show you how to make a wood table lamp. The wood I used is a piece of cedar tree, and I left part of it “live edge” or natural edge. A lamp like this can work in many decor styles from rustic, to cabin chic, farmhouse, and even to mid-century modern. In addition to the wood, your choice of lamp shade can really influence the overall “look” of a natural wood lamp.
