How to Make a Yarn Lampshade
Materials and Tools:
6 yarn skeins in various colors
Wrap First Color
Pull the yarn from the center of the skein. Using the first selected color of yarn, tie a double-knot on the top ring of the wire frame next to one of the vertical posts. Wrap the yarn down around the bottom ring and up to the top ring. Continue wrapping the yarn from left to right over the top ring and around the bottom ring, making sure not to overlap each individual string.
Finish Wrapping First Color
Wrap the first color of yarn all the way to the next vertical post. Cut the yarn, leaving 3 to 4 inches of extra length. Tie a double knot on the top ring of the wire frame and cut the excess yarn from each knot.
Wrap Second Color
Tie a double-knot with the second color right next to the vertical post where you finished the first color. Wrap the second color as you did with the first color, but only to two inches wide. Tie and cut end before starting the next color.
Wrap Third Color
Attach the third color, and wrap to the next vertical post. Tie and cut excess string.
Wrap Lampshade Halfway
Using the fourth color, repeat wrapping steps, stopping at 1”. Repeat steps for fifth color stopping at 3”. Stop at the next vertical post using the sixth color, which is halfway around the lampshade.
Repeat same pattern on other half of the lampshade to finish.
