This is easy and hard at the same time. I’ll explain. The bottle brush has a hook. Just hang it over the top ring of the lamp frame. The trick is to divide the weight of the brushes very carefully otherwise all the bottle brushes slide to one side and fall off again. Sort of a Mikado effect.
I did not fasten them in any way, (I like the pure look of it), but it might be wiser to do so. If you make it the way I did, my advise is to assemble it hanging in place ?.
Hope you liked this unique lamp shade made from bottle brushes.
