String Lampshades

created on: 01/07/09

See the lampshades behind the attractive well dressed couple? They're DIY-able! And they actually seem pretty simple. ReadyMade has instructions that are based around the kind of paper mache stuff you might have made in school.

You'll need

  • a round balloon
  • some string, yarn or wool
  • some fabric stiffener
  • A plastic take-out container lid (optional)

Find the full skinny here. They actually kind of remind me of David Trubridge lamp shades. Which I love.
