Favorite Vintage Finds of the Week- February 23rd

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a lovely weekend! We have had some cold yucky weather here for most of this past week, so we have just been staying inside. I spent the weekend reading and catching watching Netflix. Sounds boring, but it was marvelous! I have been obsessing a little over vintage hair clips lately. Don’t know what sparked this interest in me, but I am glad I started poking around because there are so many amazing clips and accessories out there! I thought I’d share a few of my favorites from Etsy’s vintage community with you all this week. I think you’ll love them!

DIY Upcycled Vintage Playing Card Lampshade

06 DSC 1218 DIY Upcycled Vintage Playing Card Lampshade

04 DSC 1222 DIY Upcycled Vintage Playing Card Lampshade

02 DSC 1225 DIY Upcycled Vintage Playing Card LampshadeA while back I made a lamp shade out of old photo slides. It continues to be one of my favorite lamps ever! Back when I made it, I thought it would be a lot of fun to use the same technique using playing cards. I collect vintage playing cards. I love to use them when wrapping gifts, or sometimes I may frame one. The artwork on them captivates me! This lampshade is pretty simple to make and it only takes a few supplies. I made mine in a little over an hour while I was watching tv with the hubby. It may take longer or not as much time depending on the size lampshade you have. Here’s how I made mine:

Here’s What You Need:

*Vintage Playing Cards (You can find some great ones on Etsy Here)

*Old Lampshade

*1/8″ hole punch

*Ruler and Pencil

*Large Jump rings

*Jewelry Pliers

Instructions:

10 DSC 1158 DIY Upcycled Vintage Playing Card Lampshade

The first thing you need to do is measure your circumference of your lamp shade and measure your cards and decide how many rows and columns you need. Mine fit three rows of 10 cards. Lay your cards out in a design that you like. Then stack them by row.

11 DSC 1159 DIY Upcycled Vintage Playing Card Lampshade

Find the middle of your side lengths and top and bottom. Mark in about an 1/8th to a 1/4 inch in the middle of each side.

12 DSC 1160 DIY Upcycled Vintage Playing Card Lampshade

Punch a hole in each of your marks on your card.

13 DSC 1161 DIY Upcycled Vintage Playing Card Lampshade

Then use the first card as a template to mark all your other cards. Then punch out the holes on all the rest of your marked cards.

14 DSC 1162 DIY Upcycled Vintage Playing Card Lampshade

 

Now you are ready to start joining your cards. Open up a jump ring and load one of your cards on it at the side hole. Then add another card at the other side hole and close your jump ring. You want to make sure your cards end up facing the same way when laid flat. Then add another card to the side of the first two, and so on until you have your first horizontal row.

15 DSC 1163 DIY Upcycled Vintage Playing Card Lampshade 16 DSC 1164 DIY Upcycled Vintage Playing Card Lampshade

Make your other rows. Then very carefully join them together matching up the bottom holes from the top row to the top holes on the bottom row. Join all the rows together.

09 DSC 1165 DIY Upcycled Vintage Playing Card Lampshade

Next, strip your lampshade of the fabric and plastic so all you have left is the rings. You can use both rings if the shade was a cylinder, or you can use just the top ring if the shade was tapered. Very carefully join your cards at the top to the top ring of your shade with the jump rings. Once you get it on at the top join the cards together at the sides where the ends meet. To finish, add your lamp shade to your lamp and enjoy.

05 DSC 1221 DIY Upcycled Vintage Playing Card Lampshade

01 DSC 1226 DIY Upcycled Vintage Playing Card LampshadeI LOVE my new lamp! The whole thing is thrifted, which makes me super happy! The lamp shade and lamp I picked up at the thrift store near me. The playing cards I picked up here and there, and got a bunch on Etsy as well. This lampshade was really simple to make and I really loved laying out my cards to patterns I liked. The finished lamp is sitting on my vintage tv in my living room and I think it is perfect there! I hope some of you will give this one a try sometime. I think you’d love it too! I’ll be back soon with another fun DIY. Until then…

Happy Crafting!

Happy Monday everybody! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! It has been pretty cold here the last week!
