Ultra Simple Lampshade Upcycle

This is ridiculously EASY!
My plain Jane lampshade just wasn't lookin' cute,
so I took some twine, rick-rack, and a glue gun
and went to town. First I hot glued the twine in the divets
if the lampshade.
It added some nice depth that it desperately needed.
Then I took some jumbo rick-rack in
a mossy green and hot glued it to the wide base of the shade.
The rick-rack didn't really match the lamp base,
but I didn't care!
Ya gotta work with what ya got!

All done!

I think it looks great
and gave the lamp a little boost!
Hope you can try this one at home!

The jumbo rick rack adds a great playful touch!

I think it looks great too. I just changed up a couple of lamp shades. I think they are a fun easy way to change an area in a room.
