February’s Easy DIY Craft: Embellished Lampshade

This past weekend, I decided it was time to do something with my bedroom lamp. The lampshade was a little too bo-ring compared to the rest of my room. So, I got out my hot glue gun and scoured my neglected scrapbook bin.

Before: Lampshade

Now, I’m obsessed with my lampshade. Don’t you think it has an Anthropologie feel to it?

Embellished Lampshade

Here’s how you can get the look.

What You Need:

  • lampshade
  • scissors
  • ribbon
  • embellishments of your choice (I got fabric flowers from the scrapbook section)
  • hot glue gun and sticks

How You Do It:

1. Measure the top and bottom section of the shade for the ribbon border. Cut ribbon to size.

2. Hot glue the end of the ribbon to the shade. Go around the shade, placing a dot of glue every few inches as you go around. Repeat the process for the top border.
