I just love this little lampshade. I first saw it done by my friend, Hannah, whose creativity is so inspiring. I also drew inspiration from a lampshade I saw in one of my favorite booths at Wimberley Market Days. Here is a tutorial so you can make one for yourself. There are quite a few steps but the outcome is worth it!
I wanted vintage silk ribbon but did not have it so I took an old satin sheet I already had and made some to look like vintage silk.
Then, I created a ruffle for the bottom out of muslin which I already had. You can use any kind of material. I found the ruffle tutorial here.
(sorry I do not have pics of all these steps, I forgot to take them, oops)
Then, I hot glued the ruffle to the bottom of the shade.
Next, I added 3 flowers, made out of the same satin I used for the silk look alike ribbon. Hot glue them straight onto the shade. I found the tutorial for the flowers here. These are the same flowers I used on my Wine Bag Tutorial.
This whole project cost me $1!!! I used a lamp I already had and spray painted the lamp base, so I guess the project actually cost me $5 because of the spray paint. I also sewed a cord cover out of ticking I had left over from my living room pillows.
