Â The girls have been back in school for about a week now, and it seems like I should have more time on my hands. Â The truth is that I don’t think that will EVER happen! Â My days are still filled with long to-do lists and there aren’t many exciting things on that list. I will be doing a couple of shows in the Fall and I’ve started getting ready for those (more info coming soon).
SO, since I will be working on things to sell…I will be sharing my creations with you and some of them will have tutorials.
Today is the first one! 😉
Here’s how to add interest to a lamp:
You will need a lamp shade, hot glue gun, different types of trim/ribbon, and scissors.
Â This project took a little over 30 minutes. Â I used a stop watch to keep track of the actual time I spent. Â (I stopped it for pictures.) Â It would have gone a lot quicker if I would have used all stretchable trim, though. Â The ribbon was really hard to work with!
Â 1. Â Start by laying out the pattern and figuring out placement.
Â 2. Â Align all the trim/ribbon on the seam and glue them down. Â Stretch it around the shade and cut each piece.
3. Â Lastly, work your way around the shade, hot gluing each piece every inch or so. Â As you work, make sure everything is lining up .
Â I am loving these colors together and it’s a little sneak peek at my Fall color scheme! 😉
I like how it came out, but I think next time I will skip the ribbon!
What projects have you been working on? Â I’d love to hear from you!
