This DIY Cloud Lamp Will Bring A Thunderstorm Right Into Your Bedroom

Here’s a fun little DIY lamp project that’s actually pretty unique, and will add some flare to your room thanks in part to TiffyQuake.

Now, you might have seen the article we featured here a few months ago about the cloud lamp that creates an incredible thunderstorm inside your bedroom, but as you can imagine it’s pretty expensive.

Which is probably something most people wouldn’t be able to splurge on, so we found this cloud lamp alternative.

You can always vary it up if you want something different, but we’ve included what they’ve used at the bottom of this article. All of which can be purchased from Amazon!
