DIY: Doily pendant lamp with lace

Beautiful lamp made of old doilies or lace. You just need a baloon, wallpaper glue and the fabric/doilies. Soak the doilies in the glue, past on top of the baloon, glue some more and over lep the doilies so they are connencted. Let dry and then pop the baloon. (it’s possible to use an old beach ball as well.
Use a nice fitting and preferable a low energy lamp (or LED). I simply sew the lamp on top with the fitting.
Enjoy- For full step by step on how to do this lamp look at DosFamily website !

    This is so lovely, so I tried to make one using my big collection of old lace doilys picked up from Charity shops over the years. I found that the wallpaper paste I used wasn’t stong enough to keep the globe shape (I covered an old beachball). Did you make the paste extra thick to stop the globe from sagging?

    Bonjour, merci pour votre site. J’aime cette idée de “lampe”. Je ne me le rappelle plus ? Ici, peut-être ? Une boule en papier de riz blanche mais …”Trouées” ! Aussi, j’ai collé +/- 100 cup cakes papier blancs, et, “Lampe Boule originale !”(sans trou !)
    Sympathie. Vi
