A while ago I saw a tutorial for this thread lampshade on Pickles and although I bought all the materials I needed, I've still never managed to set time aside to make it. Since then, I've seen several other similar ideas for making lamps like these in different shapes and sizes. They look excellent all clustered together as a unique light feature or even without the bulb inside just hanging from the ceiling (or like this). It looks fairly easy so there's really no excuse not to make it.

I also really like this doily lampshade, which is made a bit like the one above - find the instructions here.
And for those of you that can crochet, why not have a bash at making one of these great rugs? Or you could just buy one here.
And the fun doesn't stop there, here's an idea for a nice vase at Country Living.
And lastly, to complete the doilification of your home, why not rustle up a nice doily table runner or glam up your mirrors with the help of a doily and some frosted glass finish spray.
Hope you can enjoy making some of these and have more success than me and my poor attempts at the lampshade!
