So for this great DIY lampvintage linens, I used wooden clothespins. I really don’t know how well it would work with plastic ones, since you are using this as a lamp and it could get pretty hot. You need a couple of packages of wooden clothespins , which you can get at the Dollar Store for just a couple of dollars per pack.

You also want to make sure that you get the clip type clothespins that have the spring in the center. You don’t need the spring, but you do need two sides for each clothespin, so those more modern ones won’t work here.

I used about 20 clothespins for this project, but you could do more or less, depending on how big you want to make your lamp.

Note that you take the clothespins apart, and you actually get two pieces for each clothespin, so keep that in mind when you are deciding how big you want your lamp to be and how many clothespins you will need.

Not necessarily. You could make an entirely new lamp if you wanted, but you could also just use this as a lampshade and place it over an LED candle or smaller lamp.

How you set it up when you get it finished is entirely up to you. I’m actually only showing you how to make the lampshade and you can decide where to put it when you get it finished.

If you are looking to add a modern and fun lamp to your home, this DIY modern clothespin lamp is the perfect fit.

This is such an easy project and it’s the perfect lamp for a teen’s room or anywhere that you want to add a contemporary touch to your décor.

“Look mama, the plants are growing!” Hudson shouts, 10 minutes after we plant them.

We loved seeing British actress, director and mother-to-be Sophie Hunter -- oh yes, and Mrs. Benedict Cumberbatch too -- dress up the red carpet this awards season with showstopping couture gowns, but her wedding dress deserves a standing ovation of its own. Sophie and Benedict wed in a hush-hush ceremony at St. Peter and St. Paul's Church, located on the Isle of Wight in England, on Valentine's Day this year, and we were almost sure we'd never see photos. After all, they're a very private couple -- remember when they announced their engagement with a simple and traditional announcement in the U.K.'s Times?
