Sometimes nothing will do except the perfect custom piece. And often, that means DIY-ing it. Dottie Angel had a brainstorm and turned an old lamp shade into a beautiful, custom mobile. And you can, too!
All you need for this project is an old lamp shade (try thrift stores or garage sales), fabric or paper in your desired patterns, and any other objects you might want to hang. Dottie chose birds, but you can tailor your motifs to any decor.
