silly old suitcase: Not really a DIY but a story about how i made a crochet African Granny hexagon pillow. I'm going to use this pattern as inspiration to help me make a crochet Settlers of Catan board game!
Beautiful lamp shades - paint doilies (or leave them natural), cover in wallpaper paste and stick to a balloon. Wait for the dollies to dry (preferably overnight), pop the balloon. Et voila! Its a bowl.a lampshade.you decide.
