DIY Embroidered Lamp Shade

Here’s a creative upcycling project from Candice of The Refab Diaries.  She took an old lamp and an empty can of nuts and combined them to create a gorgeous, new lamp.


When Candice saw her neighbor getting rid of this lamp with a solid wood base, she decided to offer it a home.  Since the lamp didn’t have a shade, she had to get creative.  She found some nice, stiff fabric that could almost stand up on it’s own, but needed something to reinforce the top and bottom.  That’s where she made use of the nut can!  Embroidering the shade with bright, orange thread gave  it added pizzazz.
