Remember these crocheted lamps from a few weeks ago? Man they were pretty, but if you're not handy with a hook or needle, making your own may not be in the cards. Here's a tutorial which uses thrift store lace tablecloths to make something similar. Carolina who writes the Swedish blog Calinas made these beautiful shades from her own paste, a lace tablecloth and a balloon. Not only is this shade beautiful, it casts interesting designs on the ceiling when turned on.

Check out how to make your own on Calinas.
