DIY Batman Bedside Lamp

DIY Batman Bedside Lamp

I wanted to share with you a fun DIY project that I made for one of my daugh­ters’ room. We have a big Bat­man fan at home and this super easy DIY bed­side lamp made her so happy!

We vis­ited France with our girls last sum­mer and stopped at the Mama Shel­ter hotel in Paris for a night before our morn­ing flight back to the US. There, we saw this super cool idea of a bed­side lamp made with a work­shop light and a sim­ple cos­tume mask. So when we got home, I sim­ply decided to shame­lessly copy­cat the idea and voilà!

All you’ll need is a metal cage work light that you can hook to the wall, a mask and the nec­es­sary wall anchors to fix your lamp.

The metal cage part of the lamp is very impor­tant because it allows the bulb to never come in con­tact with the mask — which could be a fire haz­ard. We bought our lamp from Ama­zon [around $27 USD] but any home improve­ment store also sells some.

For the mask, you can choose any super­hero mask, but Bat­man stands out from the pack, because when the light is on and Batman’s eyes light up, the super­hero truly comes alive. How­ever, I’ve seen other char­ac­ters used for such bed­side lamps at the Mama Shel­ter hotel — such as Dis­ney char­ac­ters, if you have a tod­dler that’s not yet into the Mar­vel superheroes.

If you’ve got a super­hero fan at home and 5 min­utes for this DIY project, I highly rec­om­mend. You’ll be voted the coolest mom of the neigh­bor­hood, and when it’s night­time, Bat­man will be there for your lit­tle one to pro­tect him/her from any imag­i­nary super villains.
