Luzia Pimpinella's Hama Bead Lampshade

I am reminded this morning was an amazingly creative force the web is and how lucky we are to have such a vehicle for finding inspiration at the touch of a button.
Quite by accident I stumbled across an Instagram that took my breath away for a minute.

Isn't it just fab? Luzia's blog is an absolute delight packed with inspirational thoughts and projects. You have to hop over there right now to read all about the transformation from an "old-maid" shade into this bobbydazzler.
Luzia has put together a failsafe tutorial. All you need are the HAMA beads (maxi size) and a lampshade frame.

I can't resist having a go at one of these for my god daughters bedroom so I've just popped over here and bought myself a ton of beads in lovely pastel shades. 
FollyandGlee Tulip Frame
And wait for it....shameless plug coming up...I shall be using one of FollyandGlee's tulip lampshade frames. I'm so excited by this project ----big thankyou to Luzia for such a great idea AND treat yourself to 20% off a lampshade frame by quoting BEADSHADE at the checkout.
