A quick fun way to add character to a room is with a glamorous lamp shade for your table or desk light.

Take your plain lamp shade a little fabric glue and hot glue to add these decorative touches, any or all of the following: (Ribbons, Artificial Flowers, Rhinestones, Stencils, Fabric Paint, Tassels, Buttons, Shells, Charms, and Beads)

– Line the top and or bottom rims of the lampshade with glue, then create a border with one of your decorative pieces. You could simply glue colored ribbon smoothly around the circumference of the lamp for a simple border, or you could create a border of tiny sea shells, rhinestones, or tassels for an elegant effect.

– Using stencils (the shapes of your choice like Polk a dots or vines), you can paint designs onto the shade. Tape on the stencil, use a sponge to apply the fabric paint over the stencil. Using a sponge will prevent dripping, and it also creates a textured look.

In less than a hour you can have a fabulous new shade to compliment any decor, best of all have fun creating your own unique piece. Make it a craft project for Halloween, stencil a few black cats for a spooky surprise.
