Lighting lampshade

Materials: Regolit

Description: Instead of gluing on coffee filters, I sewed on muffin cases.

I used a running stitch around the support canes, quite loose. The muffin cases were scrunched up a bit, and I tried to avoid being precise.

The only tricky bit was that I had to wear a t-shirt to avoid getting my arm stuck/ sewn inside the shade.

It took about 400 muffin cases and about 4 hours.

    Is there any reason you sewed them on instead of gluing them? I’d think that gluing would be much easier and faster. Still looks great the way you did it.

      I had thread, but not a glue gun. Lots of the people who did glued shades put the time estimates at several days, so I thought I’d try this way.

    There is no chance of them popping off when they are sewn on. I love this hack, looks like a puffy flower. I might try it in a pale pink or lavander if I can fnd them.
