We all need a statement piece in our homes. This lamp makes a big impact and is really easy and inexpensive to make. I got the shade at a flea market and simply removed all fabric. You can use different kinds of yarn or string, all depending on the look you are going for.

You will need:

1 lampshade, stripped of all fabric yarn, I used 2 balls
wooden beads
hot glue gun
  1. Start by figuring out how long you want your fringe to be. I wanted mine to be a bit asymmetrical so I made them all different lengths.
  2. Start cutting up the yarn.
  3. Tie the yarn to the top and bottom of the shade.
  4. Thread wooden beads onto the yarn and hot glue the last bead to the yarn.
