Handmade in dyed paper, these beautiful DIY paperlamp kits have been designed in the shape of elephants both large and small, hippos in different poses, perched parrots, varieties of owls, poised penguins, shrunken cachalot whales, upright rabbits, and trudging tortoises. Animal decor collectors, animal lovers in general, and crafters will all get a kick out of these unique additions, which bring soft cosy light to the home in a unique way. Whether you want to brighten up a shady corner, add ambient lighting to a wall of shelving, or add interest to an underused side table, perhaps one of these little animals will make the perfect character to adopt to come keep you company.
Some elephant youngsters roam the dry grassy plains of the African Savanna, but this one looks right at home on a glossy tabletop in a modern living room or a rustic cabinet in a bohemian bedroom.
Mama and baby elephant come in the same colour as standard. However, it is possible to ask for a personalised colour kit, which can be selected from an extensive colour palette.
The animal models are cut from high quality 160g paper for good resistance and durability. Each arrives with a base complete with E14 light bulb socket (which requires an LED bulb) an electrical cord with switch, and a europlug CEE7 (type C). Other plug options include UK plugs (type G) and EU to US plug adapters (type A).
Roaring Hippo measures in at 38cm x 22cm, and Lazy Hippo is just a smidge smaller at 34cm x 18cm. The two new members to your household can be personalised from the online colour palette to suit your own specific decor requirements.
Not just for hardcore crafters, these kits come with a step by step assembly guide, plus an extra practice model to get you in the swing of things.
Perch the pretty boy on the end of a shelf, or a chunky picture frame for a unique decorative addition in any room of the home.
Why not couple up with a duo of shades? This 72cm feathered friend comes in a variety of colours, including cotton white, sandy beige, caramel, sienna, cadmium yellow, light grey, soft blue and soft pink.
As with the other kits, only one colour is supplied as standard, but alternative choices are welcomed. These simple kits can be used to pass the time alone or to complete with some crafty friends.
We think wise old Aurora would make a beautiful addition to a desk, a side table in a study, or standing guard over a library of books.
Measuring 38.5cm tall, and arriving in 30 pieces, Aurora is more difficult to construct than her smaller Barn Owl companions – but so worth the extra effort.
He’s a friendly looking fellow with a glow in his belly.
Available in all of the standard shades for this collection, you could team up a few to make a cool colony.
Fans of origami might find this papercraft to be a brand new obsession!
Laying on his belly with tail swishing, his open mouth and eyes emit slivers of bright light. Softer light emanates from his oversized head.
The crisp paper folds create geometric pattern that would fit with many modern decor elements of the moment.
Dolores is another basic skill level papercraft kit, consisting of just 10 pieces. With ears pricked up, this curious young rabbit measures 34cm tall.
Pop her next to a vase of fresh or dried flowers for a charming nature combo.
Her asymmetrical pricked ear pose give her bags of character.
The lamps take on a different look by day and night.
Frida the tortoise lamp could be teamed with Dolores the rabbit to create a magical woodland scene reminiscent of the childhood fable ‘The Tortoise & The Hare”.
