DIY Doiley Lamp [Inspiration]
I have been LOVING Pinterest. You can find so many awesome DIYs – fashion, accessories, home… and so much more!
I recently found a few home DIY projects or hanging DIY project which I sadly cannot do because I am renting and am not allowed to drill holes into the wall or attach bits to the ceiling. I have mostly been posting the DIY projects which I have personally done, but I thought, “why should this stop me from sharing awesome ideas with you??”
The first one I would like to share with you is potentially a ‘it’s so ugly, it’s cute’ sort of thing depending on your taste. But in my eyes I think it is soooo cute. When I get my own place, there will definitely be a room full of them.
I’ve found two instructions that show how to make them.
I would love to credit the first blue doiley lamp instructions but the Pinterest picture did not lead to a blog.
My interpretation of the pictures:
1. Soak doileys in PVA and water mixture (or another adhesive)
2. Blow up a balloon and cover with vaseline.
3. Place PVA soaked doileys on the balloon as desired.
4. Let the PVA dry.
5. Pop the balloon and carefully peel it away from the doiley shape.
6. Cut a hole where you want the bulb to sit.
Here is another tutorial collage I found from More Design Please
The original instructions for this project can be found from Dos Family
Aren’t they just adorable?? I am a little overly excited about these lamps and I do hope someone tries them out!
