~ This weekend’s theme ~
This shabby little lampshade couldn’t be easier to create. It’ll take you just a few minutes.
I found this cute lamp at the local thrift, but the lampshade needed some work. So I went through my white fabric stash and came up with a quick fix!
I ripped the fabric into workable strips, leaving the edges fabulously frayed, then I just hung them up along the top edge of the shade. One by one, random like.
Careful consideration was made to not get near the bulb.
(hot glue would be a great idea)
I then took a long strip, and tied it in one simple knot around the outside of the lampshade, near the top, hugging all the small strips in place.
And was left with a fabulously fun shabby chic to the hilt no sew no glue lampshade! It’s so fast, unique and can be changed on a whim!
When illuminated, it’s got an amazing layered effect.
But I do have one tip for you if you try this project…
Spend 1 more minute on it and FINISH it! Admit it.. you would never have known.
A themed LAMPSHADE link is below! Let’s see what you came up with!
Caution: can be a fire hazard if done incorrectly. Please be safe and don’t allow fabric to hang freely inside shade. Please do this project at your own risk.
Where the Grass is Greener’s sweet version!
