DIY String Lampshade

If you haven’t yet noticed the pattern with me, it always takes me way too long to finish projects. I always put them off for sooo long and then when I finally finish them, I wonder why I even put it off. But here we are… another one of those projects!

I thrifted this lamp and lampshade months ago and they’ve been sitting around waiting to be made over. And last week I finally worked on it! I grabbed a bunch of embroidery floss and started a movie and got to work! And here we are! I love how it turned out – lot’s of pretty neutral colors.

What you need:

  • embroidery floss
  • hot glue gun
  • scissors

Watch the video below to see the process I used!
