Old circuit boards from electronics

Glue gun and sticks (about $5-$10)

Step 2: Cut the circuit boards to your needs

The size doesn't matter. Its really just what you want. I cut mine around PCI slots for effect.

Don't focus so much on what size, more of the items from board you want on your lamp.

Step 3: Glue together!

I hot glued it. I am sure there are other techniques to bond these, but I went with hot glue

Step 4: Cap and mount

I used a piece of blue foam I had laying around. Use wood or another piece of circuit board if you want. Just make sure you can mount the lights to it. I wrapped them around a 1x1 piece of wood. Easy to mount because the lights have a adhesive backing. Then I hot glued the wood wrapped in led light to the foam board top cap. I left bottom off for cord exit.

Step 5: Plug it in!
