Picture of DIY Twig Lampshade

This might sound a bit funny, but the idea of making this lamp came from my.... dream! :p So, I decided to make my dream come true. This ible will show you how to make lamp shades from small tree logs. It's very easy to make, cheap too.

Step 1: Materials needed

To make these lamp shades you'll need:

1) Twigs,
2) Super glue and white glue,
3) X-acto knife,
4) Scissor,
5) Cardboard,
6) Lighting system.

How did you photograph to get the effect and the red color ?Is the color the background of a wall or some thing?
Muhaiminah Faiz (author)  786Ayesha1 year ago
I used a multi color light bulb, besides the wall was pink, for that reason the light effect seemed a bit reddish!

Hey, I've finished my branch lamp version,, LOL
But the reflection of the lamp light isn't as beautiful as yours
What kind of lamp you used??

This is my version hahhaha

Love the design of the lampshade you made, it's really nice.
The usual round light bulb creates a beautiful light effect with this lampshade. Let me know if it worked, I'm sure your lampshade would create way cooler effect than mines :)

This is by far my favorite lampshade from all that you have done...good job!
Muhaiminah Faiz (author)  shazni2 years ago
Pretty much! thank goodness I'm not the only one. I keep telling my family and friends about instructables, my mom already started calling me crazy! I guess I should stop before my friends tell me to shut up! But still, I'm soooooooo glad I found this website.
Thank you!
