Make a "magical" genie lamp for your next game of dress-up with your daughter, as a prop for a play or just to use as a decoration for your room. It's actually easy to create a golden lamp that looks like a genie could pop out of it, using an old teapot, some gold paint and a few gems for sparkle effect.

  1. 1

    Sand your old teapot with fine grit sandpaper to scuff it up and allow paint to hold to the surface better.

  2. 2

    Apply gold paint to the entire outside surface of the teapot with a paintbrush. Allow the paint to dry according to package instructions.

  3. 3

    Plug in your hot glue gun and wait for it to heat up to medium.

  4. 4

    Place dots of hot glue wherever you want to place your jewels.

  5. 5

    Press the jewels into the dots of glue. Allow the glue to cool before bumping or rubbing against the jewels.
