Be productive during the tube strike: Create your own designer lampshade 10 June, 2009

I love this idea from Illuminati designers Arash and Kelly – download their free pattern to create your own beautiful lampshade. You can make any of the three designs included (my personal favourite has to be the Octopus light) using just an A1 sheet of paper/cardboard in a colour or pattern of your choice, a pencil, ruler, scissors and stapler!

What are you waiting for? There’s nobody in your office today thanks to the tube strike, so if you’re at work grab your stationery supplies and have a creative moment making some gorgeous lampshades to brighten the place up. And if you’re “working from home”, make one on the sofa while watching daytime TV – ahem, I mean working on that spreadsheet. Download the pattern here.

We want to see what you make – add some photos of your lampshade creations to the mydeco Flickr group or post them to your profile on mydeco.com.
