How to Hang a Lava Lamp
- 1). Measure your lava lamp's width. Find a bracket that your lava lamp will sit in. Ideally the bracket will have a bottom where the base of your lava lamp will snugly rest.
- 2). Test your bracket. Place your lava lamp into the bracket and hold it in the air. The bracket should be strong enough to hold your lava lamp and not bend under the weight of it. Turn the lamp on to make sure that the bracket doesn't overheat and bend or burn your wall. Only continue with the installation if the bracket can withstand the weight and heat of the lamp.
- 3). Find a stud in the wall with a stud finder. Mark where the stud is located with a pencil. Place your bracket against the wall and screw it into the stud. Once the bracket is in place, put your lava lamp into the bracket like a sconce. Plug the lamp in.
