These photos really don’t do it justice. It has a beautiful warm glow and adds so much personality to the room. It looks like thousands of tissues were cut and twisted, but it’s just filters. The lamp stand was an antique I found at an estate sale. It was gold and green. I painted it with a whitewash technique.
Fold over a single filter or pile a couple on top of each other and then fold (for a fuller looking flower). Keep making tons of these “flowers” with bent tips and just keep applying until the entire shade is covered. (Or, until your entire hand is burnt from hot glue.)
My 4 year old son had a different method of decorating with them. Oh well. I can’t discourage his creativity. 🙂
