Upcycled lampshade vases

I’m so pleased to introduce you to another guest contributor, Therese Wikman, based in Stockholm, Sweden. Therese works as a print designer for H&M and spends her spare time hunting for the next thrift find to upcycle, furniture to paint or any other DIY-project. She sells her curated vintage products on her shop Miss Vintage Valentine. Today, Therese is showing us how to turn old lampshades into vases.

They where all longing for a new home. So I came up with this idea, to make vases out of them. It feels great to bring old things into a new life, by upcycling them a bit. And look, don’t they look happy, shining in their new colorful robes?
