Straw Lamp

Introduction: Straw Lamp

Hi everyone!
This is an easy straw lamp.
Unfortunately I forgot to record a step by step of this, but it is quite easy and intuitable:
All the straws are linked by a nylon threads in the corners and these are closed by crimps.
Hope you like it!!

    I really like this idea but i wouldn't know how to tie the nylon string and where to put the crimps, this needs the instructions.

    I try to explain, as you can see in the second photo, the provision of drinking straws goes from box to box.
    It makes a first square by positioning the ends of straws one above the other.
    Then you block the overlap with the nylon thread (obviously helping with a needle) and stop him thanks to crush.
    Then continue with overlays, and when you are happy with the height, make an end node and block it with another crimp bead.
    In my particularly've also added to the crush of an aluminum ring to attach it to an support for abat-jour.
    I hope to be clear (I'm italian and my english is so bed!!).
    If my explanation is not so good, I will post a step by step on a new lamp!!
