Have you ever had a Plain Jane lampshade tell you she needs a new outfit? This happens to me all the time! My Fabric Flower Lampshade being just one example.
Today’s little burlap lady received a sprucing up with a bit of sheer ribbon and trim.
She began life as a simple little burlap shade. My client wanted her new lampshade to have a bit of animal print along the lower edge.
I found the 1.5″ sheer animal print and a 2.5″ sheer black ribbon at Hobby Lobby.
The black ribbon was too wide for this size shade so I folded 1/2″ of the black ribbon over the edge of the animal print ribbon and sewed the two together.
I used a ruffler attachment to ruffle the double ribbon…
and attached the ruffled ribbon to the inside lower edge of the lampshade using hot glue.
The trim, found in the home decor section of Hobby Lobby, was also attached with hot glue along the upper and lower edges of the shade.
And there you have it. A brand new outfit to give this little lady a brand new look.
A simple, quick and very inexpensive option for updating and sprucing up a Plain Jane lampshade.
