IMG_4356
Recycled items:
  • Lampshades (different sizes and shapes)
  • Old stockings (different colours)
Also required:
  • Fabric glue
  • Fabric scissors
Method:
  1. Remove the old covers from the lampshades.
  2. Slip the stocking over the frame of the shade.
  3. Use some binder clips at the top and bottom to keep the stocking tightly over the frame.
  4. Place a good amount of fabric glue on the top and bottom rims of the frame, on the outside of the stocking. Press it onto the frame. Leave overnight to dry.
  5. When it is completely dry, use the fabric scissors and cut away the excess stocking around the top and bottom of the frame.
  6. Crochet lace lampshade: crochet a lace strip from string for the top and bottom part of the lampshade. Glue it to the frame with fabric glue.
