How to Make a DIY Lava Lamp

The lava lamp has a somewhat stodgy origin story — it was invented by a British accountant in the early ’60s. But it’s come to symbolize the hippie movement and all that’s groovy and far out.

The lava lamp is more about creating a particular mood rather than casting a ton of light, and makes great teen room decor — especially if your room is already bright, colorful and fun.

If you want the funky accent lamp, but don’t want to spend upwards of $80, you can make you own. Check out these neat DIY lamp lamp tutorials for instructions and inspiration:
