It's WISE to DIY: Thrify Ideas for the Do-It-Yourselfer

Do you have a lamp or two in your house that could use a little sparkle?  This DIY project is so cool and easy to do and turns any ordinary lampshade into a custom piece that all you will love and appreciate every time you use your lamp.

Please post pictures and share!
