There are dozens of tutorials online for creating your own DIY lampshade, but the Upcycled T-Shirt Lampshade Kit from Uncommon Goods provides you with most of the tools you need to get kick-started on this craft project. The kit includes two 12-inch lampshade rings, plus the clips that are needed to hold a t-shirt of your choosing in place while the adhesive dries. Rather than donating a used t-shirt to charity or getting rid of it by another means, this kit makes it possible to easily turn one unused item into something practical for the home.

Although it would be entirely possible to collect all the resources needed for this DIY lampshade craft on your own, this kit simplifies the process and provides the same satisfying end result.

The revival of DIY culture in Millennials satisfies the search for experiential value and product customization.
