How to cover a lampshade the easy way...

March 11, 2011

Today I'd like to share with you an easy way to cover a small lampshade.
I had a few lamp frames made out of metal wire and I would like to show you how I covered them using some decorative ribbon and a bit of lace.

With the glue gun fix the beginning of the ribbon on the frame, again half way and keep winding until fully covered.

Glue a nice trim onto the top and bottom edge to keep the ribbon in place.
Then glue some lace trimming or flowers anyway you like on the shade to decorate.

With or without flowers.

Today I went to the souk to buy a few buttons.... and over did it again, buttons would look nice on a lamp shade.

Some cute cotton buttons and lace.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Today I will be joining the party with  Transformation Thursday
                                                     and   Strut your Stuff Thursday
                                   On Friday with  Show and tell Friday
                                                             Feathered nest Friday
                                                    and   Vintage inspiration Friday

So shabby and sweet..

These are silk cushions covered with lace.

Linen cushions with silk rosettes,
just like the ones from Rachel..

of this pretty floral print..
before they sell out.

This one is in white linen 
and a bit of blue silk..

I hope you have a wonderful week
