DIY Ballard Seagrass Shade

My son gave me a vintage lamp that reminded me of Ballard's Tasseau Lamp. I also really liked their seagrass lamp shade so I decided to make my own. I purchased a shade that I believe they refer to as a sloped or tampered drum. I already had a placemat made out of some type of rattan. After unraveling it, I hot glued it to my shade making sure that my rows stayed straight. After I finished the horizontal strips, I glued a vertical strip to cover the seams. I love how it turned out! For now, it's in the foyer but once my office is complete, it's new home will be on my desk!
