Nod Fall Collection Presale on Gilt

I’m so excited to present to you our new fall collection.  We have spent the past 18 months collaborating with artists and designers, travelling the world, refining, and perfecting what I believe to be our best product offering ever.  We have left no detail unconsidered; we focused on quality, workmanship, and safety.  More than anything we hope we have created something that makes you happy, that makes your children’s spaces a little more special and helps you create a beautiful and inviting home.

Thanks to our friends at Gilt, you now have the chance to preview and order select pieces from our fall collection before we launch them online.  Shop on Gilt.com now through June 29th for this special opportunity and check out landofnod.com later in July for the full assortment.  Enjoy!

XO,

Mini Fabric Lamps

1

One of the very first things I ever "pinned" were these "Lamp Shades on a String" from Rebeccas DIY. They have been on my to-make list for months. When I first found this little project, it was only written in Swedish but I think she has an English version now. These are so cute and actually really fun to make, Finn even helped me a little :) I love a simple project, and one that uses scraps.

What you need:

 Fabric Scraps, Lights, Mod Podge and Clear Cups

Then you need holes in your cups…

Iron all of your scraps and then start cutting. I have a template HERE if you are using the same cups (9oz Hefty Brand).You can also always find any of my templates under the "freebies" tab.

Cover your cups with the Mod Podge and wrap fabric around. The template is cut for a little excess fabric and I just used more Mod Podge on that little lip.

Let them dry…

Push the lights into the holes.

Here is a little PSA: I posted a project about a year ago that involved tealights in a metal container near plastic and some commenters thought I had a death wish or something.                 I thought "its just a tealight people" and obviously I am always around when I burn candles.       I write a craft blog not a manual on life…but if this project isn't for you, just don't make it and as always please be safe :)

The best part… plug them in, yay!

Look where they live now

I love them, I want to make some for every single room. Stay tuned later this week for a very ModPodge-tastic giveaway that I know you will LOVE!!
