These lamps are IKEA staples. It is just a classic! For that reason I wanted to give it a makeover because I know there are so many in your homes just begging to be made over.
I’ve never done macrame but I really love the trend so I bought some rope. Turns out it’s not too hard! If I had more time (and patience) I would have done something cooler! Because I didn’t have a ton of yarn or time, I went for this spiral/diagnal design which kind of looks unfinished but I liked it!
How I made my macrame lamp shade
- HOLMO Lamp
- Macrame Cord

First I assembled the HOLMO lamp according to the instructions without putting the lampshade on. The very top piece I also left off so I could attach the hoop with the cord.
Next I pulled the papery stuff off of the lamp shade. The hope on the top is what you will use to start tying your cord.
Next I cut the cord into 9 equal sized pieces. If I had more cord I would have done more. I may go back and do more!
I did a diagonal knot tie so it kind of made a spiral.
I tied off the bottom of each so it looked a little bit finished. I also unravelled them a bit to make it look like it was on purpose! The fraying naturally happens and it was kind of bothering me so I just made it look intentional.
I am so loving how this hack turned out. Have you ever made over your HOLMO lamp? I’d love to see it!
