I have found several new lamp shades lately for a song! But I usually find that these "good-deals" are very plain indeed! I like to change up the way a lamp looks with a new shade and I also like to switch my lampshades around from lamp to lamp, giving me a total new look. But if you find a great deal on a "plain Jane," it's super easy to bring it up a couple of notches with some simple embellishments. For this project, I used a silk flower and some ribbon scraps I had on hand. Also, this does work best on a square shade or a drum shade.
What You'll Need:
Lamp Shade (square or drum-style)
Embellisments (ribbon, buttons, flowers, anything!)
Hot glue gun
Flat curling iron
