12 Projects of Christmas - Project #3 "CroShade"
During a masculine crocheting session, we turned what started as a blanket into a lamp shade using a pencil rod frame!
Color Cord Product You'll Need
Standard Pendant Plug In Light Cord Set
Medium Base E26 LED Light Bulb
Step 1: Cutting Wire and Spot Welding
We measured and cut our pencil rod metal pieces for our frame and then spot welded them together to make a sturdy frame! Next, we secured the Standard Plug In Pendant Cord Set to the frame.
Step 2: Mounting the Standard Plug In Pendant Cord Set
We decided to mount the Pine Plug In Pendant Cord Set
with a flexible yet sturdy wire by wrapping it around the socket and connecting it to four points on the shade frame. Then, snipped away the excess length of mounting wire.
Step 3: Covering Frame with Crochet Shade
We present to you: "CROSHADE"! The cloth shade ended up fitting the frame perfectly. We paired it with a Tesla LED Milk Bulb
resulting in a cozy and eclectic new light fixture. Send us photos of your DIY Holiday Projects and stay tuned -Project #4 is right around the corner!
