Because I Don't Have Enough Projects...

Here's the latest one for the kids' room, a hanging lamp with a shade made from colored plastic drinking straws!

Only the one I want to make will be round. It will be made with standard lamp parts, with the straws far enough away from the light bulb to prevent any melting/fire hazards, so no worries there.

I'm going to cruise the local thrift stores for old lampshade parts to revamp, but the wiring will be brand new--you DON'T want to take chances with THAT part. I'll be sure to take pictures!
