Gemstones aren’t just for jewelry, they can be used for cool home décor, have a look at this lampshade from craftingfingers.co.uk. The supplies are 1mm cord, gemstones, washi or masking tape, scissors and a surface to secure base cord. To start, measure the circumference of your lampshade by wrapping the cord around it once. Add 4-5″ to that length, and cut the cord. This makes the base. If you don’t have a macrame board, don’t worry, just tie two knots at the end of the base cord and pin them onto the couch. Use twenty 11″ lengths of cord for the fringe. Depending on the height of your lampshade, you might want shorter or longer lengths for the fringe. Keep reading the tutorial in the source.
