DIY Basket Lamp Shade
|May 29, 2012||Posted by Jessie under Crafty Things, Living Room|
I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend. Ours was spent at a few cookouts, time with family and friends, and some relaxation thrown in there too. A perfect weekend to welcome the summer. It is amazing to sit back and think about the men and women who work so hard to give us the freedom to do all those things. Grateful, grateful.
Back to my silly ramblings…I have a quick little lamp shade project to share today inspired by some of the beautiful woven shades at Pottery Barn…
- lamp base
- floral wire
I bought my basket and floral wire at the Dollar Tree and started by removing a lamp shade from a lamp we had around the house.
I did this 4 times, spaced out evenly around the basket. Then I had my husband hold it in the center for me and I basically just wrapped the wire around the bottom of the bulb. This will keep the basket in place and off the bulb and, don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be pretty because you won’t see it:)
I love this project because you can really make this shade for any size lamp, any color or texture you want. What do you think? would you make a lamp out of a basket? Any other fun lamp ideas to share?
These are the fabulous blog parties I link up to each week:
