Usually, I don’t like to put up my work on my blog/facebook/whatever because I feel like it’s real real annoying. BUT! I spent a buttload of time on the lamp (my 3D final) and I’m super happy with the way it turned out. So, I figured I’d break my own rule and show pictures of the process of making the lamp.
Ok. Step 1. After googling about 30 videos of how to make crocheted flowers, I finally found one that made any sort of sense to me from this lady with ridiculously painted finger nails and a British accent. Each flower took about 6 or 7 minutes to make (depending on how focused I was).
After crocheting ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY FLOWERS (and wanting to kill myself), I began to individually tie each flower together with thread to make rows. Eventually, it equalled out to be four rows. And then it would fell apart. So I did it again. Ok. It worked.
Then, I made a hoop with aluminum armature wire (a 3D design staple) and wrapped it with yarn. After that was done, I tied the sheet of flowers to the hoop to make the lamp shade.
Finally, I attached a light chord that I bought at Home Depot and hung it up. Umm… did I mention that earlier this weekend, I put the light socket together wrong and accidentally blew a fuse out that resulted in the whole floor’s power going out? Because I did. Oops.
I’m going to try and hang it up in my new house. We’ll see how that one goes. Hopefully I don’t blow out Savannah’s power. Finger’s crossed.
