TULLE PENDANT LAMP
This cute lamp looks like a tutu skirt for little children, but could definitely give a soft yet brilliant lighting effect to small dining spaces. All you would be needing is a large tulle, a light bulb, an embroidery floss, embroidery needle, safety pins, and a cutting mat. Take the tulle and cut it into a 17” wide strip, fold the piece that is larger of the both so that the shade could be of three layers. Secure these with safety pins and sew them carefully. In the end, place a cord in the shad and fix a lamp and you will be done with your project.
FOLDED PAPER LAMP
This one is for those who enjoy the craft of origami and paper folds. It is simple and subtle, but needs a lot of patience and time to make. So, perhaps you can sit on the couch and make this one while watching a movie or binging on a TV show. It would probably take around 7-8 hours to finish the whole thing, but the final outcome will never disappoint you.
BAMBOO ORB PENDANT LAMP
This elegant lamp is made with bamboo strips and one CFL bulb, and is said to resemble a Cassiopeia chandelier. The kind of bamboo used for this project is flexible and can be bent as per your need. More materials needed for this project include glue, cords, scissors and mini spring clamp. You have to cut the strips and bend them to form a circle. Later, glue them together and fix the lamp from the top of the shade and suspend it from the ceiling.
SNOWBALL WALL LIGHT
Perfect to be placed above the headboard of your bed, this light fixture can be done with the help of basket shaped coffee filters, fairy lights set, and a sheet of hardware cloth. You have to take the cloth, fix the lights and place the filters in such a way that the hardware cloth would not be visible anymore. If you desire, you can even color these coffee filter ruffles by dipping them in paint.
Just looking at this beautiful lampshade struck me with a cupid’s arrow. For book lovers like me, this is perhaps a perfect lamp shade. I mean, look at how the light sears through the pages of the book, giving it a brilliant aura!
To make this project, choose one of those big books you’ve always hated to read, or a book you’re willing to give up, and the, cut a rectangular piece big enough to place the bulb inside. That’s it and you’re done!
