Ribbon covered lamp shade

Kim over at Twice Remembered is hosting Make Your Monday and I thought I would get in on the fun.

I bought this lamp at Wal-mart for $3. Actually I purchased two of them. They didn't have a lamp shade but I loved the simplicity of them. I have to admit they sat in my closet for the longest time before I decided what to do with them.

When I started getting my craft room together I knew this lamp would be perfect. I purchased a plain shade at Home Depot for $5. I bought the ribbon 50% off at Hobby Lobby. Not too bad for a total of $11.

I wrapped the ribbon around the shade and made sure that the edges overlapped. I'm really please with how it turned out.


  1. Great job Amanda! Darling! Welcome to the party..
    Stop by!

    love, kelee

  2. Really Cute! Good Idea!!

  3. Oh, this is really nice! I'm such a sucker for red and white polka dots, so needless to say, I adore this project! Very simple to do but so sweet!

  4. I am helping my sister with her baby's nursery and we are doing it in a red, white and blue theme. This little lamp would look so darling in the room. I'm going to remember this one!

  5. Very cute and thrifty project.

    I have a new (3 wk old) party, the Knock Off Knock Out and would love for you to join .
