These beautiful lamps look very similar to the lamp in Aladdin. To make these find teapots at stores like Home Goods, Good Will, or other home decor places with cheaper prices. Buy gold spray paint for multiple surfaces, gems or any other embellishment your heart desires. In a well-ventilated room, spray the teapots gold doing a few thin layers so the paint doesn’t drip or get sticky. Once the paint has dried overnight, get your hot glue gun out and attach the gems, beads, and other fancy items to make the lamps pop. Enjoy!
