For a while now I have been wanting to change up the lighting over the kitchen sink.  If you recall we have mason jar pendant lights in our kitchen. I love them but the light over the kitchen sink just never seemed like it was enough so this was a perfect time for a change – drum shade style!

Sisal Rope

DIY Jute/Sisal Wrapped Drum Shade at theDIYvillage.com To get the jute twine drum shade started add a generous amount of tacky glue along the seam just below the top edge of the shade. Take the end of your twine lay it in the glue and begin to wrap your drum shade with the twine. To keep the twine from coming lose from the drum shade while you wrap secure the starting end with a clothes pin.

When the drum shade is completely wrapped the last step is to hang the drum shade.

    Ugh! I just wrapped the top of a large terra cotta pot in twine last night – I had glue all over me and had to keep checking on it afterward to make sure none of the twine was coming loose! Your method looks a lot less messy…but a day too late for me! Love what you did!
