"Why can’t i have normal cute niche hobbies? I just rot." @nessa

"Where’d you get those peace sign beads? They are so cute." @Gabby

And still others had some great suggestions to really enhance the vintage, retro vibe of this DIY, upcycle lampshade.

"You should buy one of the stained glass light bulbs from target. It’d look so cute with this!!" @ok

First, you need to find or repurpose old beads. The best place to look is thrift stores and yard sales. You can also save your own when cleaning out your jewelry box—ensure they're clean and in good condition before stringing them onto the wire. 

Once you have your beads, remove any fabric from the lampshade frame by cutting it away with scissors. 

Then attach each strand of beads around the perimeter of the frame using a glue gun (or superglue if you don't have one). For added effect, add some glittery jewels or rhinestones to create a sparkly masterpiece!

Making your own DIY project can be a fun and rewarding way to make anything fit your personal aesthetic.
