Texture is very much on trend, as are fluorescent colours so we thought we would combine them in a hanging lampshade. We also managed to find some great coloured lamp fittings on line. So you can make this spectacular shade for a fraction of what it would cost in the shops.

Step by step
- In an open area. Cover the floor and spray the lamp frame. Leave to dry. When dry turn the fame and spray any areas that aren’t covered.
- Wrap string, in clumps of colour round shade from top to bottom. Leave some areas completely open as it produces very interesting shadows when the light is on.
- Spray some colour into a jar and then paint it onto the outside of the fitting. Leave to dry.
- Push the fitting through the frame and hang in position.
Tips. If the string moves around too much then use a glue stick to anchor the start and finish of each colour.
