The vuvuzela is a topic of great discussion and controversy, you either love it or hate it, but how can it aid to the design world? With it’s shape and colours it gives room for endless design possibilities. Here is a way of making a bedside lamp that is cost effective, quick and very easy to make at home:
What you will need:
Lighting fixtures
Lamp shade of choice
Light bulb
Electrical Cable
Light switch

I decided to spray my vuvuzela white, but you can keep its original colour or spray it any colour of the rainbow. Making patterns is also an option.
Drill a small hole close to the end of the larger side of the vuvuzela, this will be used to pull the cable through.
Connect the electrical cable to the light fixture and feed the cable through the narrow end of the vuvuzela and then through the hole that you have drilled.
Connect the light switch and plug point to the cable.
Fix the light fixture to the vuvu by gluing it to the smaller end of the vuvu,
Then add your lamp shade and light bulb and presto...
It can be used as a bedside lamp, task light or table lamp for any occasion.
