...I bought the Xmas lights at ikea and I already had the canvas. I penciled the backside with the pattern I wanted and then made holes with a screw. The lamp isn't perfect, as there were many left-over bulbs and I didn't quite know what to do with them. I didn't want them coming down the wall so I just kind of randomly shoved them into the canvas. Still thinking about how to solve this problem, but in the mean time it's a great, soft source of lighting. Cost me about 30 bucks and two hours of a Sunday-- totally worth it.
