A clever idea!

Well it has been a cruisey Saturday morning so far and it has given me a chance to catch up on some blogs and time to discover new ones.
I also have a few new faces following honey and fizz , which is very exciting so I will definitely be trying to get to you and say hello :)

I just saw this post over at Full House and thought it was so clever that I had to repost it! A d.i.y fluffy light shade.

It was made by Nicole at Parlour. Made with a paper lantern, hot glue and 1200 coffee filters!
I just started following her so I am looking forward to catching up on her blog. (I need to learn how to link things, will work on that!)

How clever is that?

  1. Oh wow that is pretty neat!! Is the shade from IKEA?

  2. What a clever idea!! It looks really effective. Have fun at Finn's soccer presentation x

  3. Oh, wow wee, that looks amazing, i bet it caught your eye!! Is there nothing a hot glue gun can't spruce up & look a million dollars?? Well yes, but you know, from a handmade craft angle . . . love Posie

  4. How gorgeous is that..and such an affordable project to take on it. Windy As I say...we nearly got blown away at the park today ..did you get my email? :) x

  5. Love love this idea. Would be a very affordable way of creating a very expensive light fitting. Thanks for sharing. Happy weekend.

  7. Some people are so clever arent they?!
    Thanks to Amanda for helping me with my linking!

  8. What a great idea, I was trying to work out what it was in the first picture! Some people are very creative.

    Hope the presentation went well and you survived the weather :)

  9. Very clever indeed, I like it!

  10. That is one crafter with the gift of patience. I wonder how long this took? Beautiful though, and unique, like a piece of art work. Fabulous example of being thrifty and design on a dime. :)

  11. Hi there...thanks so much for featuring my project, and all the kind words. Yeah, it took 1200 coffee filters and probably around 10 hours of gluing for this to be finished. I actually ordered it online (IKEA did not have one big enough for what I wanted.)But, the smaller ones from IKEA would work the same way. Hope this helps...if anyone else tries it let me know how it turns out! ( =


Thanks for leaving a comment :) You just made my day xx
