DIY Balsa Wood Lamp Shade
Happy Wednesday! Today I have a great DIY for you guys. It is SO EASY, and I was super excited with the end result.
Check ‘er out!
Materials: Lamp shade, balsa wood (different amounts depending on the length/width you get, but buy extra because you’ll need more than you think – also, get balsa wood that is super thin and bendy, that way you don’t have to steam the balsa to get it to bend), glue gun, and glue sticks (obvies)
Note: I only used glue on the very edges of each piece
Step 1: Line the top and bottom edge of the shade
Step 2: Add pieces willy nilly! Tuck the ends into other pieces and wrap in a manner that leaves a little space and isn’t completely flat against the shade
Step 3: Keep adding! Keep tucking! My goal was to have all the ends tucked so none were showing
Step 4: Stand back and admire your beautiful creation. After all, you are a very talented individual.
And there she blows! Standing in all her my-mama-just-made-me glory!
