Another idea I saw on Pintrest (I just LOVE that site!!). My oldest daughter has decided to redo her room. I really did not want to have to buy new bedding and change everything that was blue so I was thrilled when she agreed to just add some new colors. I saw a redone lampshade like this one on Pintrest and thought it would be perfect for her room. It would add a girly flair and make use of a lamp we already had. We plan to paint the base once I get out and get the paint.
I got the ruffle trim from JoAnn's and already had the jeweled brads and Prima Flowers. I needed 6 yards of the trim to cover this lampshade. I used my trusty hot glue gun to adhere the trim to the shade. The lamp uses a low wattage bulb so I am not too worried about the heat. In spite of the many times I burned my fingers with the hot glue (I really need to pay more attention to what I am doing and less on the Harry Potter movie playing in the background) I had a lot of fun making this. Of course, there was the added bonus of a happy teenager when she saw her new lamp. I think I got some good mom points for this one. :)
Happy Scrapping and Crafting!
