First of Two Christmas Gift-Lamps


The base was a "candlestick" lamp I bought at the thrift store for 3.50. But it needed some repairs...and a harp....and shade... so take a look at what worked for me..

    @SheilaG, Plum Doodles Thanks! I was going to do an Ombre color scheme but really hated the pale blues when I started stringing them and decided to change it to the blue and silver...They are strung in Columns. 15 strings of 4 each. The circle is a Macrame Ring that I bought for 1.47 At Hobby Lobby and I used jewelery wire and a washer to create the center framework. I also used the parts from the broken lamp because the socket on the candle stick was broken, (that's why it was 3.50) and I spray painted the socket and harp from the broken lamp silver to match what I was doing with the colors.
