DIY Project Idea: Bird's Nest-Inspired Lamp Shade

Catch My Party

I love simple DIYs that add something unusual and unique to your child's room. When I first saw this lamp, I figured it must be some high-priced number that was out of my reach. But then I realized it was made from newspaper, and I was sold.

Wanessa from WC Designs created the tutorial for this lampshade for Catch My Party. You will need a pile of newspaper, some glue and lots of patience: Wanessa made over 200 rolls for this particular lampshade. If you don't have that kind of time but love the look, consider making something smaller as a night light.
