DIY bird cage lampshade to hang on a lamp stand.
Here is the list of the necessary equipment:
- bare structures for the lamp shade
- a toasting roll
- spray paint
- a large LED bulb
You will also need some tools:
- A cutting pliers
- Possibly a clamp for holding the wire mesh to the structure
Time: count one afternoon to do everything
Budget: count between 35 and 50 $ (depending on the structure chosen and the size of the bulb)
Step one: Fix the screen to the lampshade using clamps and / or some pieces of wire.
Second step: Once the structure is fixed, pass a long wire with a tight squeeze, as if you wanted to “sew” the screen to the shade.
Then, cut out the remaining wire and cut the pieces of wire as close as possible.
Step 3: Paint in 2 times (leave to dry half an hour between the two layers approximately).Copper color here but it is also very nice in silver or old gold.
Fourth and final step: fix the lamp on its foot or suspension, placing the bulb, then add the birds on the grid. The other option is to lay them on branches or chopsticks that you can also bend.
