Many thanks to fungus amungus for his collaboration and help on this project.
Step 1: Materials
- fabric stiffener (1 16oz. bottle per lamp that you'd like make)
- large spherical party balloons (can be gotten at a party shop in the 16" or 3' sizes)
- crochet thread or thin cotton yarn
- lamp cord set (Ikea sells the HEMMA for $3.99 that will work great)
- rubber gloves
- newspaper (it makes a bit of a mess)
