Upcycled Sweater Lampshade

Turn an old, passe lampshade into the new, stylish one!
Time is passing by, trends passing by as well. So, what you can do with all things that are still working but they don’t fit modern interiors? First of all, don’t even think about throwing them away! Second, find a way to upcycle them. Creative minds should find a new use without troubles. Check out an example of using old jars as supplies in making a Mason Jars Pendant Lamp.

Beth from Unskinny Boppy website is a very creative blogger. She found use for an old sweater and old lampshade at once. She wanted to replace old lamp by something more suitable to her place. So, she figured out that she can stretch second-hand sweater on the old lampshade frame. This way she creates a totally new lighting. It’s very simple and ingenious idea at once. You can choose sweater in the same color as the interior is. In fact, you can use any clothes or fabric, if only it will be large and stretchy enough.
