I've been meaning to give this lampshade a makeover ever since I bought it. Since July's Create With Me project is just that, I decided to finally give it a little tlc. And I didn't even wait until the last day of the month! The Before and After:
The Ribbon/Trim aisle is quickly becoming a favorite section of mine. I found this lacey, flowery stuff at Joann's.
And couldn't resist.
I got to work!
I found it easiest to apply the fabri-tac to the lampshade rather than the back of the ribbon. Simply squeeze some on and press your ribbon to your shade. I started at the bottom, wrapping and gluing and then cutting each layer so it was not one continuous piece of ribbon, but rather 9 individual pieces. You can't even tell where I began and finished with each layer! This was such an easy and fast project that added some pretty little detail to Baby J's nursery.
There is still plenty of time for you to join in the fun, so grab a lampshade and get crafty!
