15 Minute Lamp Makeover

I needed a softer light in the playroom for those early morning play sessions when the overhead light is too bright. Like today at 6 am when Luke insisted on getting up. I had a lamp that was not being used and decided that I was going to make it work. A fat quarter is all I needed for my lampshade and I had a perfect Heather Bailey fabric that coordinated nicely with the pillows. Other supplies needed: hot glue gun and jumbo ric rac.


Wrap the fabric around shade. I left the selvage edge as a hem. I love how Patty Young leaves the selvage edge on pillows, etc. This is where I glued both layers.

Cut the excess off the top and bottom leaving half an inch.

Use hot glue to attach fabric to shade. I did about three inches at a time.

Cute, but needs a little something.

The yellow jumbo ric rac fits the bill! Just a bead of glue along the bottom and voila finished!
