Blow in a balloon and tie a knot to not let it blow out. Blow it to the size you want your lamp to be. Carefully apply fevicol all over the balloon. Try not to burst it out. Take the jute rope and start rolling it around the balloon in any pattern you want.
After rolling, cut it down with the help of scissors and join the remaining rope with the already rolled up one with the help of fevicol. Leave some portion of the balloon uncovered around where you have tied the knot.
Keep it aside and let it dry completely. After drying; take the scissors and carefully cut the balloon from around the knot. You can also use a needle to burst it by carefully piercing the needle into the balloon. After that take out the balloon with the help of tweezers. Attach the wire to the bulb and hang it inside the nest. Put on some flowers on the jute nest and decorate it.
Walls are looking dull and boring? Hang on some glass paintings and make it look artistic.
