Doily Lamp DIY:


First we used a huge baloon that I bought at a party store.

Then you collect all the old Dollys (?) crochet or lace small tablecloths.
I found mine at a flea market.
Paint them with lots of wallpaper glue so they are soaked.
Hang the ballon on a string and put the soaked lace on the baloon. They have to overlap eachother so they will stick together and connect.
I always put on onother coat of extra glue when thay are all on the baloon.
Just to be sure.
 
Then wait for a while. Maybe a whole night.
Pop the baloon when the glue is dry. And attach a nice looking cord and lamp fitting.
Voilรก a new lamp!
How to get the bulb into the shade. I simply cut open a little tear on top.

Tags or small cards - You can purchase ready made tags at craft stores, or if you'd like a more custom look you can make your own from your choice of cardstock and a tag-shaped paper punch (about $10-15 at craft stores). You can also opt for simple rectangles, cut easily with a paper cutter.
