DIY Faux Paper Lantern Lamp Shades

September 6, 2013

How clever. Want to get this look but don't want to spend the designer money for it? The newest issue of Martha Stewart Living shares some interesting DIY ideas which include tying two lampshade frames together to look like paper lanterns but sturdier.

Or take two plain lampshades and bind together with stretch grosgrain ribbon. (See second photo below) Hey, you can even try ombre dying the lamp shades in the center for a really unique effect!

To see more lampshade DIY ideas check out the latest issue on news stands now! Psst! There's a really interesting one that involves wrapping twine.
