Saw something like this online and wanted to have a go at making.  Polystyrene ball with spagnum moss glued on - quite messy to do!  Ended up also binding with transparent nylon thread to hold it all together.  Found an old bamboo stake in garage which used to hold it up and added some dried star jasmine vines around bamboo.

Anthropologie inspired lampshade.  Lots of tutorials online for how to achieve this look.  Repainted base.  This lamp was more than 35 years old, so didn't mind if project didn't turn out but am happy with result!  For this size shade if I did again would probably make fabric circles a bit smaller - these were 3 inch.
