Whirl-it lampshade - free DIY tutorial

Whirl-it lampshade - free DIY tutorial
We really needed a new lamp, and we´ve planned to make one for months. This week we finally got around to it. It takes a bit of different materials, but it´s really easy when you´ve started. We recommend making it outdoors, as it gets quite messy. The result is pretty neat, especially at night when the threads cast shadow on the walls. We planned to make the lamp using the yarn Garnstudio Ice, but it ran out really quickly, and we had to improvise by using a thinner yarn to complete it. What we used One big, round balloon. How we did itGather all the materials.Put the yarn into the glue and mix properly. Fill the balloon to a desireable size. Hang it and start whirling. Whirl pretty tightly.

Paper, Beads & Inspiration: Fun with wallpaper and Mod Podge I have been enjoying myself with my wall paper sample books. I am also for the first time ever using Mod Podge. I had been reading about Mod Podge a lot lately and the glossy variety looked like just the kind of stuff to finish my beads. I had tried varnish and that worked OK but it didn't get a nice gloss.
