I’ve seen just about everything done with placemats, but I’ve never seen this! Sarah at StepThruCrazy made a pendant lampshade from three vinyl placemats. Wow! She even wrote a tutorial so we could all make one for ourselves. The dollar store is a fabulous resource for placemats, so check for them next time you go.

Project Estimate:

  • 3 vinyl placemats, $3
  • Hot glue gun & sticks, on hand
  • String/strong twing, on hand

Total: $3 and up (add a pendant lamp kit from IKEA for about $3)
