I cannot tell you how much I am crushing on this woven pendant lampshade. Although, to be clear, it’s actually TWO lampshades. Their shapes aren’t identical, but their lower circumference is. And that’s the important thing, because that’s where they’re joined!

As for the weaving part, Koral used DMC embroidery and ecru cotton thread, which is explained over at Fabrica de Imaginacion. The original tutorial is in Spanish, so you’ll have to do the ‘translate’ deal, but the accompanying photographs are done so well, you probably won’t even need it.

  2. Hi,

    Thank you very much for this tutorial- it looks amazing! Could you tell me where you bought the metal frames? Thank you 🙂

  3. This light is sooo cute! I love it so much! I am wanting to do some home projects when the kids go back to school and I would love to recreate this. I am planning on doing some kitchen cabinet refinishing this month so maybe after this. Thanks so much for sharing!!!
