|Love letters printed onto the shade. So romantic and sweet. My love letters might be a little too steamy...|
|These rosettes are so pretty.|
|Love this Anthropologie inspired lamp. So pretty.|
You will need:
Long strips of fabric (approx. 12X3 inches. There is a lot of wiggle room with this size) I used plain muslin and a lacey white fabric.
Cream colored felt
1. Start by cleaning your lampshade with a lint roller. Mine was super dusty and this just helped give it a nice clean base to start with.
2. Cut some 2 inch circles of the felt out. How many depends on how many flowers you are making. They don't have to be perfect circles. These are going to be the base of the flowers.
3. Take a strip of fabric and fold in one corner of the strip and glue down about 90 degrees. Then start twisting the opposite end and turning it around the end where you glued down....twist and glue, twist and glue. Its hard to explain. If you need help, google "diy rosettes" and there are many helpful videos on You tube. Once your rose is about half way finished, glue down to the felt circle. Then finish twisting and glueing the rose. Here are some illustrations:
4. Continue until you have the desired number of flowers. I maybe made 20 to cover my small lampshade.
6. When you have made the pattern you want, let dry and you have a new lampshade!
|It looks like a freaking cake and I love it!|
|See what I mean by restyling? It just needs a little umph, thats all.|
The end. I am in love.
