- thread (embroidery thread style),
- beads, straws,
- a pair of scissors.
- Possibly spray paint.
To start this project you will need to cut the straw in half. For the first part I took 36 pieces of straws. And each was 5′ long.
Now pass two pieces of thread in the straw. Make a triangle with three straw like shown above and then tie a knot at the top of each triangle.
Do the same thing until you have 6 lozenges.
Now cut a large piece of thread and then pull it through each of the straws in the center of the lozenge. add a bead between each diamond.
Attach, with knots, a straw to the tip of each lozenge.
Now tie the ends together,just attach “a” with “a” and “b” with “b” (like in the photo).
You must finish the top of the lampshade. Between each tip of lozenge you will attach a straw of 3′ long (6 pieces in total).
You must complete the structure, included bits of straw as demonstrated in the picture. I have no estimations to give, on the grounds that I’ve sliced it to fit the structure. The light will slip between the two straws highlighted in yellow.
TIP: To pass strings through straws, I utilized a bit of straw, cut lengthwise with a little space to slide the string in it.
I painted the straw and then I used a cardboard box in order to not disassemble the lamp.
And voila! I also love the shadow it makes!
