What the eff does this have to do with the denim lampshade?

Where are the instructions for the lamp shade?Thought it was a neat idea for by daugher's room.

it would be nice if the video actually showed HOW to make the lamp shade & not just what parts of the jeans you need to keep, or show a completed project (ie the jean covered binder). even a link to the "how to make an upcycled jean lamp shade would be nice.

cool, gotta search for the pattern and instructions, but VERY cool

I clicked on the picture of making a lampshade but there are no directions here.

@SwampCatNana, this is a video tutorial. If you are having trouble viewing the video, you may need to update your Flash Player or QuickTime software. These are free programs to download. Hope this helps! --Editors of FaveCrafts

I think editorKS needs to read what people are saying! I received an email to "celebrate Levi's birthday". Number 11 idea was "Denim Lampshade" and there was even a picture. Clicking on the email link leads to this video which has NOTHING to do with the aforementioned idea. To top it off after a general search on this website there is a picture of said denim lamp with the caption "Upcycle Jeans Video" which leads me to this video that really tells me nothing about HOW TO MAKE the denim lampshade. So, editorKS, there isn't a problem with a pdf file, but a problem with a misleading link to a video that doesn't deliver the promised directions to a denim lampshade.

Love the denim mat idea. I have made alot of things out of old jeans, but this was a new one. Thanks
