Lampshade Before and After

I found this cute lampshade marked down at Walmart for 7.00.  I really liked the shape and texture. Of course much too plain for my liking, I thought with my FAVORITE season approaching I would FALL it up a bit.  This is the first of my Fall decor...much more to come.
I really like the texture.
What a cute touch...easy too, I just hot glued the leaves, made a little bow with twine and stuck it in the center.
As you can see I took the twine and wrapped it just around the top some.
How easy was that? EASY!~ Those are the only craft projects I know how to do, the easy ones!
Don't forget about my Before and After Party coming up Wednesday. I look forward to all your projects.

That's so cute! I love that it's simple and it would be easy to change it seasonally just by changing the leaves to something else. Very cool!
