I realized I never shared my tutorial on how I made this Petal lampshade.
So here it goes!
I started with this lamp that has an accordion lampshade.
And would you know the accordion part pulls right off!
It was looking yellow underneath, but covered up fine with some white fabric.
I cut strips of white fabric about 2-3" inches wide. The longer you cut your strips the better.
Then I folded it up like paper dolls, and cut a petal shape.
It will look like this when you un-fold it.
I used hot glue and began glueing them on, I would pinch in the middle of the petals to give it some dimension.
Keep going...and going....
And going more the next day when it's daylight:-)
And finally, you're finished! It actually looks great on the original base too, but sometimes I like it on my thrifty spray painted lamp base.
This was so easy and a fun way to makeover an old lamp. I'd love to hear about any lamp redos you've taken on! Thanks for stopping by!!
