In the base it is also necessary to make slots for the installation of cartridges with bulbs. Their number will depend on how bright the lighting should be. When making slits, be sure to take into account the thickness of the bulbs in order to correctly calculate the distance between them.

It is also necessary to cut out the sidewalls for the perimeter of the base, and in the lower of them to make a small gap in order to pass the electric wire. The sidewalls are fixed with screws, the places of the hats are covered with putty. It is advisable to use sandpaper for even grouting. Wall lamps themselves can provide a color design. The entire frame can be primed with a primer, which will ensure a long life and paint in the required color.

On the back side of the side parts fasteners or hooks are installed, by means of which the lamp will be mounted to the wall.

This lamp on the wall with their own hands is quite easy to make. To do this, it is necessary to have a dense thread of any color (you can take a white one and paint the finished structure in the required color), PVA glue and balloon. The technology is very simple. The first thing we do is to inflate the ball to the size that the lampshade should have and tighten it tightly. We first soak the threads in the glue, and then, attaching the tip to the base, we begin to wind the ball in a chaotic order. The density of the winding can be anything, it all depends on how bright the light should radiate the wall sconce with your own hands.
