I first posted this Doily Lampshade DIY at the start of 2010, as one of my first blog posts and my first attempt at writting a DIY it was a bit rough, so I thought I would give it a bit of a makeover and a re-write before doilys become completely passe (if they're not already).
You will need:
- a plain white lampshade.
- a selection of old crochet doily's.
- some spray adhesive.
Step 1, Clean your shade of any dust and lint.
Step 2, Lay your chosen doily's out on some newspaper and spray generously with spray adhesive, leave for around 10 minutes until the glue gets 'tacky'.
Step 3, Carefully place the doily's on to your shade (sticky side down), pressing them down firmly as you go. Leave to dry overnight and............
.......Viola, an easy peasy and super pretty doily lampshade!
