Wire Lampshade

Wire Lampshade Cut a wire lampshade frame in half and crimp aluminum radiator grille around the frame. Line the grille with opaque art paper to diffuse the light. Use a light kit to wire the light, cut off the plug, and hard-wire the sconce to the wall. DIY Tip: Use a high-power, low-wattage LED light for long-lasting luminosity and to prevent the paper from getting too hot.

For a DIY shade, scout out an old wire lampshade frame. Cut narrow strips of different patterned fabric in coordinating colors. Starting at the top, wrap a strip of fabric around one of the metal spines, then stretch it over to the next one, working your way around the frame. Simply knot one strip to another as needed. Continue down to the base of the frame, securing strips with hot glue.

"1. Lampshade made from a wallpaper sample, base is a green ceramic drawer knob glued on a white button. 2. Shade is made from ribbon, base is painted wood. 3. Shade is white cardstock, base is made from a metal pushpin, blue plastic bead, and clear button. The lampshades are attached using the wire harp method I mentioned in a previous post, though this time I used hot glue to secure them in place. | Source: Margaret Loves

Closer look: "For this prototype, I welded a wire frame and then made this lampshade that slipped on top of it. It was made from different tin can lids, including one that said "quality pet food," slightly bent and connected with pop rivets. The beads were punched-out circles from a metal sign that I attached with little wire "S" hooks that I made by hand."
