What I Did: The secret to making this lamp is : 1) use the right product and 2) be very, very, very careful when you remove the structure from the balloon. It took me 4 attempts to make this lamp. It is NOT as easy as it seems . The secret is to find the right product. After trying wallpaper adhesive, a home made glue based on plain flower and ordinary glue, I tried fabric hardener. Fabric hardener is like magic :) The doily’s became quite hard. After removing the balloon it was quite a quest to attach the lamp. But after some additional hours I succeeded and I am now the proud owner of this fabulous lamp!

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Don’t try ordinary glue, immediately go for the strong products! :)

What I Did: In search of a healthier diet I’m trying LCHF, these were supposed to be a substitute for bread, made with meringue, egg yolks and cream cheese. Psyllium husk was optional, so I left it out as I didn’t have any, perhaps that’s the key to not wasting 3 eggs and half a pack of cream cheese?

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Try adding psyllium husk, it was a bit thin…

What I Did: We just used can frosting, did no specify what to use. Well the frosting was not the right consistency and was just melting, once we put the “bunny ears” on, it all went down hill…. literally.

My Result:

Next Time I Will: Next time I will use different frosting and use smaller ears.
