This project requires absolutely no skill level and takes about two minutes. It's just a silly little idea I had while at work when I came across a transparent giftbag that I knew I needed to take home with me.

I bought this giftbag



to jazz up this lamp a little



So basically I took off the lampshade (durr), poked a hole onto the bottom of the giftbag and stuck it on. Then I cut off the little rope handles and wrapped one around the tip of the lampshade poking through. (you can use glue for a more permanent lampshade)



Final step: illumination!



Much nicer, don't you think? Thanks for looking!
