This is DIY waiting to happen! It can totally be done for less than the $198 that Anthropologie is charging. DIYer at Retropolitan did it for $50: When it was all said and done, I ended up spending $10 for the lamp kit, $10 for the drill bit, $4 on epoxy, $12 on dishes and $14 on the lamp shade!
1. take a huge balloon, lots of doilies, and some wallpaper glue 2. blow up the balloon, and paint the glue onto the doilies so that they're soaked. 3. tie the balloon on a string. make sure all of the doilies are overlapping so that they stick 4. put on an extra coat of glue and let it dry for at least 24 hours. pop the balloon and you're ready to go :)
Doing this ... I can't believe Anthro actually sold out of their $400 candlesticks, what insane person would pay that much?
