The Pixar lamp is iconic. Most of us have seen the little guy hopping into place before several of their films. Instructables user darcy3529 made the lamp outfit for her granddaughter from a coverall and mat board with dowels. The build looks rather affordable and straightforward. Here’s how she completed the frame:
The frame/cage for the costume is made from mat board that I covered with fabric. There are fabric covered dowels that go between the 2 matching side frames. The pieces were all glued together using a strong silicone glue. Then furniture slides were added to look like nuts. The frame slides over the head and rests on the shoulders.
The base is a dollar store platter that has a hole cut in the bottom. I flipped the platter bottom side up and covered with fabric. There is a fabric collar glued ro the opening of the platter.
