DIY Doily Lamp


Isn’t it amazing?! Found this wonderful DIY on pinterest and fell in love with that piece of art.

dosfamily explains, how it works to create such an amazing lamp:

The lamp is easy to make and truly a beauty.

First we used a huge balloon that I bought at a party store.

Then you collect crochet or lace small tablecloths.
I found mine at a flea market.

Paint them with lots of wallpaper glue so they are soaked.

Hang the balloon on a string and put the soaked lace on the balloon. They have to overlap each other so they will stick together and connect.
I always put on another coat of extra glue when they are all on the balloon.
Just to be sure.

Then wait for a while. Maybe a whole night.

Pop the balloon when the glue is dry. And attach a nice looking cord and lamp fitting.
Voilá a new lamp!
