I hope you are ready for this next “Try This at Home” recipe here at Emmas Designblogg! Before I start I would like to thank you all for the positive feedback on my previous project when I showed you how to change a picture frame.
This time I would like to make a lamp out of material that most of us can find at home. It is a lamp made out of recycled material and I simply named the lamp with the most convenient name: “The Rug Lamp”. What you need to make it is basically a lamp shade, wooden beads and rug strips – the easiest way to make these is to tear white bed sheets into thin ”rag rug strips”.
I started to rip off the old fabric from the lamp shade. After that I hung the shade up in the ceiling and started working on the strips. I tied them on but as sparsely as I could just to get an airy feel to it. Some strips I let hang down freely and some of them I tied on to the shade, and as icing on the cake I fixed on wooden beads at the end of a few strips. That was spot on!
This “Rug Lamp” shows more of a Scandinavian impression with the white strips but it can be decorated with colorful ones just to generate another feeling.
Next time I will present a great Spring project for you and to the ones who love some pottering in the early March sun you should check out here the 21st of March. Hope to see you then!
Creative greetings, Annaleena
