This is my first challenge entry and I am pretty pleased with the result.
I have been working for months and despite all the midnight run to Wegman's
for more straws, it turned out amazingly well.

PS. All images can be clicked for a bigger view!!!






FIRST STEP:  I started with some colored drinking straws



.

SECOND STEP:  I then twirled them around a pen taping the ends down





THIRD STEP:  I then hot glued them to the shade



.

I hope you enjoy my Fabulous Retro Lamp Shade!

this is really neat! At first, until I saw how you made it, they looked almost like pearler beads!  Cheesy

I thought the same thing! Not so much in the finished project picture but the picture showing them all rolled up they definitely look like perler beads.

After checking out Regretsy I'm pretty sure I could sell my stuff on Etsy.
