Through the use of rice paper in the shade and huge numbers of its value at IKEA is about 10 $, which opens up great opportunities for creativity.
For this transformation we need the lampshade:
- Actually the lampshade regolithStead, of course, can take any shade of rice paper. Options can see, for example, here
- Garland of artificial flowers made of cloth or just a lot of artificial flowers. They can be found in stores or make your own, but that's a topic for another article
- Scissors and hotmelt
- Fringe with pompons
- Cord for hanging lamp. Can be purchased at the same IKEA
Natural color, shape and size can be any decor - it depends on your goals and preferences.
