Weve planned this for ages, and here it is: The Wirl-it lampshade!
Its made with big balloon, vaseline, cotton yarn, wallpaper glue and a marker.

Fill the balloon, rub it in with vaseline and start whirling the yarn soaked in glue.
We used both thick and thin yarn in two different colours.

I really love this. How do you attach it to the lighting fixture for ease of light change? Hope you don't mind me asking.

As in changing the light bulb? The shade is super easy to take off. I jused the hanging device from an IKEA lamp, and you can unhook it in seconds.

I've seen something like this before as an ornament, but never as a lampshade.  Nice job.

This is fabulous!  I am going to have to try and make one now too.  I think I might do red though.
