How to Make a Lamp Shade Better

by Dinah Wulf

Here are easy instructions on How to Make a Lamp Shade Better.  I bought this lamp for my daughter’s room and wanted to dress it up a little.

Being the cheapskate I am, five bucks was my limit on this do it yourself project. So I bought a $3.99 roll of hot pink ribbon and a butterfly and came up with this.

Materials Needed:

  • Lamp Shade
  • Ribbon
  • Hot Glue Gun

Simply wrap the ribbon in a criss cross pattern and use hot glue to secure it along the edges of the shade.  Embellish it with a butterfly or rhinestones. It looks great both on and off!
