This lamp shade made with the wire frame of the lampshade is so different than anything I have ever seen and that is what makes it interesting. It can be a great addition to a teens bedroom and I can see it in colors to match the room decor. Why not give it to your teen and give them some fabric scraps and let them come up with how to make it. My only concern is if it will catch on fire? Does it get real hot? Nice tutorial and step by step pictures.

What a fun and whimsical idea. I could see this in a child's room or a baby room. The bright colors are fun, but it would be interesting in just black or white or in complementary colors. It is certainly a good way to use up left over fabric scraps.

I love your creation for the lampshade! Do you fear that it might catch on fire? All those threads hanging out---?
