"Night fly" lampshade hack

Materials: IKEA lampshade in suitable size, fishingline, stiff fabrick and gluegun

Description: I used a lampshade that I found good in size, removed all of the fabric and used the metal base of the shade.

The flowers were cut out of the fabric in two different sizes. The fishing line were attached to the lampshade frame and the flowers to the fishing line using felt furniture-floor protection circles.

Many hours later my own “night fly” lamp was finished.
