- lamp base
- roll of jute twine
- hot glue
With a dab of hot glue, adhere the beginning of a roll of jute twine — available at hardware stores — to the top of the lamp base.
Wrap the twine around the base, hot-gluing every few rotations so that it doesn’t droop. For a textured look, occasionally overlap the twine.
When you reach the base’s bottom, cut the twine and secure it with a final dab of hot glue at the back.
Follow these instructions for embellishing a lamp base with tempered glass.
