I used vintage lamp shade frames for these. And they were free!
I found muslin at Hobby lobby.I think it was 1.49 a yard.I bought three yards just to make sure I had enough for two lamps.And it is always good to have extra for other craft projects.
I cut them in strips long enough for the length of the lamp and about an inch wide.I made a slight cut and the ripped the strips off.I wanted a frayed look.I hot glued it to the top and tucked it a bit.I over lapped each strip as I went along.At first I was going to let this hang but I did not like the look so I went back and glued the bottom.I did this around the whole shade.I finished it by making fabric roses and leaves.If you want to learn how to make these flowers go on over and sign up for Creatively Made Home.
I did the flowers a little different on both shades.Love this look!And it was so simple to do!
Gearing up and getting ready to start decorating for Christmas this week.I was going through some of my decorations from last year and most won’t be up this year.My home was much different and now will not work with my decor.I do have some things I can tweak a bit and should work.
What are you working on?
