Yarn Mosaic Lampshade


I like to knit and love to crochet, but hardly have time for either, yet that doesn’t lessen my addiction to yarn. So when I came across the bewitching spinning skills of Austin, Texas, artist Amanda Jones, I was hooked. I used her yarn to make this frilly lampshade and you can too!

Jones’ Hysterical Yarns start at $23.05 for 55 yards. To see more of her work, visit www.venusart.org or venusart.etsy.com.


Aleene’s Fabric Fusion Adhesive

Directions: Work one section at a time on the lampshade. Coat a circle shape with the glue and snip a 15-inch piece of yarn. Lay it on the glue in a swirl pattern. Continue all over the lampshade. Trim the edges by going around and around.

Fourth of July project ideas!

  1. That’s fantastic! And the yarn is beautiful. When I first saw it I thought the project must involve tacking the yarn down with thread (=cool but time-consuming). The glue sounds like a much better option : ) I can’t wait to try this!
