Check out a simple way to make decorative crochet lampshade patterns by dipping doilies in glue and placing them around a balloon. The balloon acts as a temporary anchor mold to hold the doilies in an egg shape until they dry, harden and can hold their own three-dimensional shapes. For more adornments for your light fixtures, take a look at these recommendations for household projects, such as jellyfish-style lampshades, table lamp covers, pendant lamps and even cocoons. If you prefer to hand-crochet rather than create patterns using an anchor mold, Craftaholics Anonymous has a different step-by-step procedure for a crochet lampshade.
