Twine Lamp




DIY twine lamp. So simple and quick if your ready to jazz up your lamp shade.


You will need:
Lamp shade
twine
burlap or fabric
buttons
hot glue
needle and thread

I bought a thick twine from Hobby Lobby. The thicker, the quicker when winding around craft projects.
I start from the top and go to the bottom, hot gluing as I go.

For the flowers I used fabric around the house and then I spray painted some burlap blue. To form the flowers you can cut a strip of fabric 1 inch wide and about 40 inches long. Make a fold in the fabric and one stitch. Along the bottom of the fabric you need to make stitches all the way across then pull the thread so the fabric bunches up.
You the shape the fabric into a flower shape and stitch to secure it.
Hot glue a button and hot glue to the lamp and you're done!
