Glue 2 old cassette tapes together, light up a room with this DIY

If you're looking for a funky new lamp to display your unique style, head down to your local thrift store and stock up on cassette tapes or comb through a drawer for those you've hung on to. These bygone musical memories are often plentiful at second-hand stores and can be an excellent way to subtly display your favorite artists and bands.
Aside from the lamp bases, this project requires only cassette tapes and hot glue, making it a fun and easy project for the kids on a rainy day. Keep track of little fingers while the hot glue gun is going and enjoy the memories of your favorite jams.
