Vintage Map Lampshade


This was another Christmas gift/DIY project.  I  made it by decoupaging pages of a vintage atlas onto an old, beat-up lampshade. With some artistic license I followed the instructions over at Pretty Handy Girl.

This is a great DIY project for the intermediate craft-aficionado, and it takes about 5 crafting hours. Next time I will cut the atlas pages so they do not overlap, but I am very satisfied with the finished result.
