How to decorate a lamp shade with ribbon.
I had this lamp in my inspiration file. I like the vertical lines. I went out in search for something like it.
I was pretty happy when I stumbled upon this one at my favorite thrift store for $4.30. Didn’t like the wood top section, but it was an easy fix with some white paint.
The harp that came with it made the lamp too tall, so I went to my lamp stash in my basement and found a short one.
I also had some lamp shades in my stash and chose a white barrel shaped one. I wanted to add a bit of color to it in the way of ribbon. I found some inexpensive bright and cheery ribbon at Walmart. I bought two because I could not decide which color I liked better.
I am thinking if I add pops of color throughout my house.
I went with the pink ribbon.
I simply turned one end of the ribbon under to create a clean edge and hot glued it to the other end of the ribbon on the back of the shade with a dab of hot glue. This way when I want to change it, it is easily removed and no damage to the shade
