Easy Layered Lace Lamp Shade

This is going to be a "mostly photo" post since this was an extremely simple project!
Pin It
I came upon a massive amount of lace for super cheap at a Goodwill awhile back.  I've been itching to cover a lampshade in ruffle-y lace for awhile now, and I finally had enough to do it.

I took pictures of the process, but my blogger nightmare has happened (again! But for good this time I'm afraid) and I lost my camera with a card full of pictures.  I used a piece of chalk to mark around the shade so I knew where to put the hot glue and worked from the bottom to the top.  I usually eyeball stuff, but I'm positive I would have ended up very uneven at the top if I hadn't used the chalk!  This project was very easy; just a little time consuming and you need to be prepared to go through a lot of glue sticks!

I assumed I'd put this shade on a cute lamp and try to sell it, but my little girl insisted it go on the lamp in her room.
It matches her shabby chic decor, so I guess it will stay!

  1. I love the shabby chic feel. It looks gorgeou and elegant. I would love for you to share on my Chic By You Party @ ChicByTab. Hope to see you there!

  2. This is lovely! At least you have the excuse of having lost your camera - I always think that I will just try this without taking pictures because I don´t think it will work - and then the project is done and I don´t have any pictures... And I do it again and again... so what does this say about my intellect?

  3. So pretty! I love the lace!
