FAF Fiber Arts Friday-Create an artful lampshade for your home!

Hi Everyone, today is friday so time to share my newest idea for FAFToday another use for art yarn besides knitting. !  I LOVE this. It was so relaxing to do and I think that it created a wonderful lamp shade. All you do is start with an extra chunky core spun art yarn, about 30-35 yards. A plain old lampshade and a glue gun. Run a line of glue from the glue gun and begin at the bottom of the shade and begin to wrap the yarn around the shade. Do about 3-4 inches at a time or the glue begins to dry. Wrap all the way to the top and there you have it. An awesome new lamp shade. Don't worry if some of the shade shows in between rows I think in enhances the shade when the light is on. When the light is off the fiber is really  showing off nicely. I used alpaca but you can use sheep. I think the core spun  looks better than a ply or single spun but its really whatever you like.  Wrap your a little with your yarn of choice and no glue to see if you like what you see. Another idea for art yarn besides knitting

Die Wolle sieht prima aus. Die umwickelte Lampe ergibt ein tolles Licht.
