The best DIY projects are useful, simple, and inexpensive. On rare occasions they're also beautiful. Such is the case with the Tres Lamp, a small source of lighting created out of three sticks and a lightbulb by Instructables user Tim Wikander.
The project couldn't be more simple. All you need is natural fibre cording, a plug, a lightbulb, a socket to match that bulb, three dowel rods, and some simple tools like a handsaw and wire cutters. With that, you can make the beautiful lamp pictured above. For the entire how-to, hit up the full post over at Instructables.
