DIY Doily Lamp- BEAUTIFUL and under $20!

I found the blog EmmmyLizzzy that showed an awesome and easy tutorial on how to make a doily lamp. I’ve never heard of it but it’s beautiful.

I encourage you to check out the tutorial here

I would love to try this at some point! You do have to order a “Lighting Kit” from IKEA which almost stopped me from posting this because we all know IKEA = EXPENSIVE but the lighting kit is only $5 I checked! Can see it here. Everything else can be purchased from dollar tree or extremely cheap. 🙂 Enjoy!

ALSO. the blog ValeriePaperie tried out this project too and had a few good tips about making sure to overlap the doilies so they do not come apart and to be concious of your time whime making these so that the balloon does not deflate. She personally recommends a large round Latex balloon from a party store. Her blog can be found here.
