Ping Pong. Soda Can Tab Lamp Shade. Chopstick lampshade tutorial. A few weeks before I left for my Chile vacations MIL took me to one of my now favorite stores 99c! It’s crazy how much stuff they have all for 99c. And even tho I would not buy things I need quality, why not get the ones I need quantity?

I got 2 bags of 50 chopstick for $1.98 pretty good huh? – But the best part with what I made with it, a pretty lampshade for my craftroom =] - Old lampshade wires or thick wire to make your top loop - 1 or 2 chopstick bags (50 units) depending on the size you want – I used 1 1/2 bags - hemp twine - Ruler, pen, hot glue & scissors Step Uno - First you will need to start marking your chopsticks, I marked 1/2″ on the top and the bottom, do that very light on the back of the chopstick (the plain side without the center crack) but depending on how you want it to look you can do it the other way, I just really liked the pattern left when they were all together.

Light Shade

Chelsea here from Lovely Indeed, happy to be joining the amazing DIY squad at Poppytalk! I'm a big fan of recycling and repurposing, so I decided to get to work on some cardboard boxes I had laying around the house. As it turns out, cardboard makes a pretty sweet little pendant light. First, gather your materials. Corrugated cardboard, 25" wide and as tall as you'd like your lightSpray paintYard stickBox cutterGlue gunPendant light cord (this one from Ikea is only $5!) Step 1: Start by spray painting one side of the cardboard. Step 2: Mark the cardboard at 5-inch intervals lengthwise with the box cutter. Cassette Tapes as Lighting. If you’re a product of the 1980s, it’s safe to say that cassette tapes were a way of life at one point or another.

Since cassettes probably aren’t going to be making a comeback the creative minds of “ Ooo My Design ” have figured out various way to re-use the nostalgic plastic tapes. One of those ways is through lighting for any space . From pendants to floor lamps and light up cubes, there are even “special editions” that feature clear cassettes for the ultimate luminous glow. They’re all tied together and can be taken apart if you’ve got the urge to listen to some of your favorite 80s bands. Each piece is unique and handmade with an emphasis on the iconic ‘technology’ of yesteryear.
