Fast, Fun, & Fabulous Lampshade
If you've followed my blog for a while you might remember this cute cloche lampshade I made. You can see more on that post here:
I crafted it from one of those fabulous little wire trash baskets you can pick up now and then at the $ Tree. I love these little things and purchase about 10 every time they have them in stock.
Which is a good thing because they are a great go-to craft material for all kinds of - "Hmmm, what could I use to make a _______?". Most recently I, again, found myself in need of a lampshade. The one that came on this brass and marble antique lamp (garage sale $2) was too large to fit my table, but the lamp just wouldn't be ignored - it had to have its place with the cherubs and other Valentines-y things.
The lampshade really took no time at all, because nothing was altered from its original state. I simply draped a large doily over the wire trash basket, strung red tulle through the doily, and then fussed it a bit. Fast, Fun, & Fabulous, and perfect for Valentine's Day! It think this would be super cute hanging as a chandelier, too - Don't you?
Thanks for visiting the tub!
