Have you seen woven lampshades and thought you'd like to give it a go. This is a fun way to try it, though much patience is required. Grab a hanging planter, a comfy chair and start weaving.



Materials

Hanging planter basket
Twine and wool in different colours
Scissors

Method

Clean your planter basket and remove any rusty or hanging parts.



Start off by weaving one shade of wool, round and round, keeping the weave tight.



When you tie off your first colour, start your second colour and weave round keeping the thread tight.



With each colour that you add make sure to keep compact, sometimes weaving over the same patch again.



You can even add ribbon or fabric to it, but it you have the patience, continue along all the way in wool and twine for a more uniform look.





See Ana Kras Bon Bon Lanterns for inspiration.
