Hello! Hope you are all doing well wherever you are, and that my recipes and DIY projects are bringing you some comfort and distraction at the moment. If you've got any requests for recipes and home DIY projects, makes sure you let me know by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Today I've got a really fun and quick DIY project that you can do at home - the DIY No Glue Raffia Lampshade. I stumbled across a desk lamp at my local tip shop a few of weeks ago and I instantly fell in love with the Mediterranean inspired ceramic base. It was only $5 and I knew I wanted to flip the dirty lampshade into something beautiful.
I have been contemplating wrapping it in twine or natural raffia but I wanted to create something fresh and new, something I haven't seen before. A couple of weeks ago I was at Lincraft and I discovered this beautiful chocolate brown raffia, and knew it would be perfect. The textural, fluted base is white and cream, so I knew a warm tone like chocolate brown would pair beautifully with it. And here we are. Often my DIY projects take a few days, so it was so much fun start and finish this in as little as an hour. Read on to find out how you can transform any old lampshade at home in as little as an hour using raffia. I might also add this is the perfect project for when you're binge watching Cruel Summer or The Parisian Agency.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read through this tutorial. I hope you enjoyed it and feel inspired to flip your own DIY Raffia Lampshade!
