At Christmas, knee deep in crafting mania, this hanging light was born. It started as a $1 lamp shade at the Laurelwood neighborhood garage sale which I then embelished with black fabric, finished with brown grossgrain ribbon on top and bottom, and then adorned with calico letter cutouts. I used one of those paper lantern lightbulb fixture/wire combos for the electric innards. It now hangs in Jooge's room and lets out a lot of great light. I was amazed to see this the other day because it totally reminded me of my letters though it was a different purpose for the letters. I may do this next and actually use their template. So cool!
