I have been wanting to liven up our bedside lamps in our master bedroom for a while now. I fell in love with a couple of ideas but none seemed to work out.
|Tatertots & Jello|
I started by wrapping my lamp shade in burlap. It is by no means perfectly wrapped- I should have given myself a little more wiggle room on the top, bottom and sides but it all gets covered up in the end so it didn't really matter.
I cut four inch strips of the remaining burlap and ironed them in half making two inch wide double strips.
Then I placed a inch or two of hot glue on the folded edge of the strip and glued it to the lampshade in a squiggle pattern.
I started to worry that with the four extra inches added around the shade that it would somewhat dwarf my lamp but I love how the shade stands out!
It is so pretty and I love it both with the lamp off and on!!
I realize this has been done by quite a few bloggers in the past but it is new to me and I couldn't be happier with the new addition to our bedroom! I'm am starting another Anthropologie inspired lampshade project soon- be sure to stop back by and see how it turns out!!
