Let’s go!

Equip yourself to create your hat lamp

As mentioned in the introduction, this deco idea is inexpensive. Please have simply:

  • a bowler hat (you doubted you would be …).You do not have to use a good brand of hat, you might as well build on the good old hat H & M …
  • scotch not to exceed
  • a cutter
  • white paint for the undercoat
  • the paint color of your choice, for inside the hat
  • two washers, a threaded rod (along 2 cm) and a nut
  • an electric wire (Poppy advise you to choose a twist to the vintage side), a plug, a switch, a socket and an LED bulb

Hat preparation

To give the hat its decorative side, you’re going to paint the interior, which will be visible. To do this, carefully remove the liner and apply the tape on the curb.

Then sub-sleeping with white paint; made two sub-layers as necessary and allow to dry. Once dry sub-layer, apply the paint chosen respecting the rounded shape of the hat. Let dry.

Note: if like Poppy, you have chosen a beautiful vintage hat, you can keep it as is. It would be a shame to spoil.

The mounting of the LED bulb

You now have more lighting options to install the LED bulb and passing current. Why absolutely an LED bulb? To prevent overheating, of course.

Make a small hole in the center cap to pass the threaded rod. Place a washer and screw the nut on the hat dessusdu and position a washer and screw the socket inside.

If you know anything about electricity, install the electric wire, the switch and the jack out of the hat before screwing the bulb.

If you have a little trouble, be sure to request a hand your electrician friend. To put you on the right track, here are some tips for mounting a bush:
