Pretty much all the lamps in my apartment are thrifted so the lampshades I own have seen their better days. But this is why I’m in a constant search for a DIY lampshade that won’t take up too much time/money or cause headache/failure, lol.
So voila! One lampshade down! The tights I used were a size S/M, and as you can see the lampshade is quite small. I tried super hard to get my S/M tights on a larger lampshade and it was a complete fail.
What’s great about this DIY for me is I got to upcycle this tragic fashion experiment (no more yellow tights for me!), also the light isn’t dimmed by these stockings, I suspect this may be different with different colors and different textures of tights but I’m really impressed by how great this lampshade has been working.
Can’t wait to try a print a la Vintage Revivals!
Vintage Revivals bought new tights in her post, but I think you can easily find printed tights at a thrift store or upcycle tights you haven’t worn.
