On a recent trip to Yakima for a Volleyball tournament I picked up this beautiful Crystal Lamp....
But the shade looked like this....
So I went to work to create this Lovely...
Big smile..happy sigh :)
So this is how I did it:
The first thing I did is rip off the old outside fabric on the shade.
Using burlap fabric that I already had on hand, I cut a stripe about 4 inched wider than the lamp shade measuring from top to bottom.
Using my hot glue gun, I glued the it to one of the wires and then stretched it to the next one also gluing to it.
On the 3rd wire I glued and then cut the fabric leaving it close to the wire.
I then went back and turned the burlap over the top and bottom of the shade gluing it in place as I went.
I then started again but this time gluing on top of the last wire with the fabric on it. I repeated this process until the shape was fully covered.
For the flowers I did a simple rolled flower You can find the tut here: On The 36th Avenue
One of my very favorite blogs I might add!!! :)
For the leaves I first covered one side with Mod Podge so they wouldn't fray. After they were dry, I just cut out leaf shapes in different sizes.
I used the hot glue gun to glue them on....
Here it is lit...I wish I didn't have to sell it..... :(
And here it is down at my space in Viking Village.
