This lamp shade updo literally cost me nothing and took 15 minutes to do! I think the longest thing was waiting for the glue gun to warm up!
I started with this awesome lamp a friend gave to me because it didn't sell at her yard sale.
I cut up 2 inch strips of muslin from my scrap pile and ran it through my machine to ruffle it up. (Go here for a tutorial on the super fast way to gather fabric.)
Then I hot glued it to the top and bottom of the shade. This covered up a bunch of holes and stains that was on the shade. The rest of it was in pretty good condition, I just had to run a wet cloth over it.
How adorable is that! It is super sassy but oh so simple. Just what I like!
