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! To see more, visit my blog at
