Last week we spotted this really cool and relatively easy DIY project from the boys at Mini Moderns.

Turn an old lampshade into something a little bit special, using raffia and a bit of patience. We really love the effect it gives and of course you can do this with any size shade.

To get this 1960’s vibe head to Mini Moderns Instagram, hit on their ‘lampshadeinspo’ story, and follow the tutorial.
