Do You Have Three Minutes and a Boring Lamp Shade?

Seriously.  Three minutes is all you need.  And some ribbon.  And some hot glue or liquid stitch.
Charley’s white lamp shade was fading away into the white walls.  It needed an accessory to fancy it up and make it stand out.  My first thought was pom pom ribbon like I did on the family room lamps.  But then I came across this pink pleated ribbon at Michaels’s and quickly changed my mind.
I’m out of glue sticks (#craftemergency), so I used liquid stitch for this little project instead.  I just put a line of glue on the bottom edge of the shade and laid the ribbon over top.  Easy peasy lemon squeezy.  It doesn’t stick right away so if you misplace it by accident you can move it around a bit.  I think it takes about 30 minutes to dry completely. 
I spent any spare time I had this weekend in Charley’s new room doing projects here and there.  There’s nothing on the walls but I have bedding, curtains and a closet nook to share with you soon! Pin It
