Boho Lighting Ideas that you can make

Bohemian chic is a trendy style that is also very versatile. Some call it eclectic while others call it boho, but whatever it is it's a fun way to use DIY to decorate a home. In this feature we look at how you can use boho style to incorporate lamps and lighting to your home that are easy to make or easy to replicate.

As the DIY movement continues to grow we're always on the lookout for new ideas, and boho chic is one style that lets you decorate with a bit of personal flair. Be daring, be unusual, be unexpected and add some one-of-a-kind lighting to your home with one of these boho inspirations.

Country Chic

boho lighting ideas

We know that fringes and tassels are usually limited to cowboy gear, but it's also an easy way to make your own unique lighting. Use wool, yarn, hemp or rope to add some down-to-earth glamour to your home with just a bit of country chic. All you really need to make your own stylish boho light shade is some wood or steel rings - or revamp an old shade - and your choice of material to craft a tassel or fringe lamp shade. Choose colour for your chandelier that complement other design elements in your home.

Dress up an old light fitting with simple wool trim arranged to form a fringe around the inside of the fitting. Choose a colour that complements you existing decor and add as many layers as you wish.

Bold and Boho

diy fringe lamp or lamp shade

Tie your tassel or fringe chandelier into the spirit of boho style by using brilliant coloured fabrics and accessories. That's one element of boho that I truly love the bold jewel colours that are a part of this design trend. Buy some colourful fabric and decorative trim to cover up old lampshades to add a splash of colour to your bedroom.

If you prefer your colour a little more muted, you can still dress up a plain lamp shade with a tassel trim that gives your lighting a brand new look. Visit your local fabric stores to view a selection of colourful tassel trim styles that you can attach to the existing shade with a hot glue gun or fabric glue.

Zip Tie Lamp Shade!

bohemian lampshade bedroomThis BOHEMIAN STYLE LAMPSHADE I made for my (kind of)BOUDOIR style bedroom, and I hope that this tutorial and pictures will INSPIRE you to make your own lampshades &#; it is EASY and DOABLE.

I just LOOOOOVE how this lampshade has the look of feminine HOT AIR BALLOON (especially when the lights are on), don´t you think so? I wanted it to look like a strawberry and whipped cream cake &#; I think I managed it :-)

I had no success in my search of ready-made pendant lampshade that would fit my design wishes. And so I started to hunt for the thrift store lampshades that would have such shape that I could envision to dress up with that tasty sounding BOHO touch.
I got an old, big, round and very dusty lampshade that could have been made in ies. I tore off the fabric from the lampshade right outside the thrift store as I did not want to bring home some 50 years of dust.
I wish I had made the picture of how the original lampshade looked when I bought it, but in those times I was going around without camera (it did not come to my mind then that some day I might be sharing my crafty adventures via Internet).

I hope you will benefit from seeing the pictures of this lampshade making process (also if you would decide that this is a great example of &#;how-NOT-to-do-something&#;) and will be inspired to create anything you wish to create!


Boho Lampshade tutorial scheme

NOTE 1: See the scheme of the lampshade that is in this attachment. It contains explanation about each level.

Two lines that are knitted with eyelash yarn can be made out of any kind of fabric (best of all if it has half transparent texture to let the light shine through). I chose knitted version (picture 3), because I wanted to make big loops that would give enough light, while the yarn created nice colorful light.

Lampshade itself is divided into 5 horizontal lines of materials:

1st Level: dark red fabric on the top (picture 5).
2nd Level: knitted red eyelash yarn line (picture 3).
3rd Level: the widest line &#; central part sewn with vertical lines of floral fabric and 10 lines of lace (pictures 1 and 2), embellished with red beaded garlands (repurposed from Christmas decorations).
4th Level: knitted line of coral color eyelash yarn.
5th Level: made of two layers &#; white lace fabric lined with light violet fabric (picture 10). I chose to have two fabrics for the lowest level because having only the white lace was letting too much light shine through it (not so appropriate for a bohemian lampshade).

How to make Bohemian Lampshade tutorial

NOTE 2: While pinning together all the horizontal lines of the materials (picture 4) &#; I was checking how much the light was shining through the cover when the electricity was on (picture 5), just to be sure I would be satisfied with the amount of light it gave.

NOTE 3: The middle line (floral fabric and lace stripes) I had to adapt to the width of the lamp also after I had sewn all the vertical lines together. It was helpful that the 10th line of floral fabric was cut in two parts, plus seam allowance (picture 6), so I could pull it more together where it was necessary, to make sure that it covered tightly the carcass of lampshade.
When I was satisfied with the fit of the cover &#; I sewed the cover together by hand (picture 7).

Tutorial of How to make Bohemian Boho Lampshade or Lantern

NOTE 4: This lampshade had something like a crown (picture 8) that could be mounted on its down part. I painted it white, then wrapped it in a piece of molleton that was slightly wider than the crown part, so I could sew the lace on it (picture 8). I chose such lace that had pattern perfectly fitting the size of the crown. The flat seam  on picture 9 looks rather big, but in reality it is not so visible.

NOTE 5: When I put on the crown on the lampshade, I added the big beaded garland at the place where crown was connected to lampshade (picture 10).

How to make unique diy lampshade tutorial

NOTE 6: I wanted to have even richer look of this lampshade, so I sewed pearl beaded garland on the coral color knitted line (picture 11).

NOTE 7: When I looked at the hanging lampshade, I still had a feeling that I would need to add another detail to make it look even more bohemian and special, so I added the hanging ornament that you can see on the pictures below. This ornament has a very practical function &#; when it is pulled down it works as the switch for the light.

There is a SEPARATE tutorial that explains HOW TO MAKE BOHEMIAN STYLE ORNAMENT.

lampshade boho unique

If my projects look unusual or strange, then it is because I approach crafts with letting the flow of imagination and creativity carry me wherever they take me (well, there are quite some times when this approach does not bring any satisfactory result). The side effect is that such journey increases my own risk tolerance when NOT aiming for perfection, but aiming to have lots of fun during creation process and playing with materials of different textures and colors. And if at the end I am not satisfied with the result &#; I anyway have learned something, and &#; I am always free to get my hands and imagination busy with thenext weird project :-)

I love making lampshades. You can see two more tutorials of my lamps &#; LACE LAMPSHADE for our dining nook and UNIQUE GOLDEN LAMPSHADE that I made for the table in one corner of our living room.

And I love BOHEMIAN STYLE, so there will be more posts with tutorials about the interior objects I have made for my bedroom.

Lampshade diy boho

Bohemian Beaded Lamp

Materials and Tools:

lampshade holder ring with drilled holes for hanging prisms
standard washer-top bulb clip
tall lamp
painter's or masking tape
medium-gauge jewelry chain
two pairs round-nosed jewelry pliers
4mm or 6mm jump rings
miscellaneous beads of different sizes and colors
measuring tape


1. Cut monofilament line 4" longer than the length of bead strands. To determine the length of the beaded strands, place lampshade ring on the lamp and measure how far down the beaded strands will hang. This measurement will vary depending on the height of the lamp. This shade is 8" long, so the monofilament was cut to 12" lengths.

2. Thread a large bead or charm on the monofilament and knot at the bottom to secure. Use a measuring tape to measure the strand and continue stringing beads on the line until the bead strand is 8" long.

3. When the bead strand is the desired length, wrap a small amount of painter's or masking tape to the end of the monofilament to prevent the beads from sliding off while working on additional strands.

4. Using round-nosed jewelry pliers, open a link in the jewelry chain to create the length of chain needed for the lamp; we used 9" lengths of chain. Continue to make additional chain lengths.

5. Open a jump ring with the round-nosed pliers and attach a charm to one end of a length of chain.

6. Make enough beaded strands and lengths of chain with charms to attach to the drilled holes in the lampshade ring. We attached chain or strands to every other hole.

7. Tie the bead strands to the lamp by threading the top of the monofilament line through the drilled prism hole in the lampshade ring. Tie the monofilament in a double knot to secure the strand.

8. Attach the chain lengths to the lampshade ring by opening a jump ring with round-nosed pliers, threading the chain on the jump ring, inserting the jump ring through one of the drilled holes in the lampshade ring and closing the jump ring.

9. Trim away any excess monofilament and attach the shade to the lamp.

What are you doing. I screamed muffledly, watching Roman move in our direction with a new glass of beer in his hand, what should I do now.
