Ouija Board Lamp

June 27th, 2008 by Cobwebs

Ouija LampCraftster recently challenged its members to remake a board game into some new item, using as many parts of the game as possible. The dresses made of Uno cards and Monopoly money are pretty awesome, but I simply love Nekoneko’s ouija board lamp.

Her method involved carefully scraping a thrift-store ouija board off of its backing and gluing it onto a similar-sized lampshade. It’d probably be possible to do something similar using a photograph or scan of the board, which would also allow you to re-size the image to fit a different lampshade. A home printer probably isn’t up to the task, but copy shops like Kinko’s usually offer oversize printing.

The bird’s nest on top of this lamp is cute, but I think I’d prefer something a little less flammable sitting on top of my light bulb. I like the inclusion of the planchette in the design, though.

    The Ouija font is available from many free font sites, and is called Captain Howdy. You could also hit the Museum of Talking Boards for clip art for customization.
