How I love doing lampshades.....

It's time for a fun quickie here. We all love a quickie  right?....wrong??maybe??.....You may recall this past year I have been into embellishing lamps. It is the cheapest quick fix to a different look.
Since painting my stools and really having that Country french look, I decided a new lampshade was in order.
First let me take you through a few embellishments, just in case you are new here.
This one seemed to be a big Hit during the Fall.

Then we had the Pretty poppy one in the Summer
Then there was this crazy one...I still like it I guess that is a good thing
There are a few more, but you get the gist.......So now onto my Recent one.

Pretty self explanatory here. I bought the harlequin ribbon, and black trim half price at Hobby Lobby...also the green rose.
Hot glue gun is my friend.
Pretty fun though to change up a shade for a few bucks and a little bit of time.

How fun. I haven't thought of doing that. I like to decorate all over the place so now there's new ground. Thanks too for all the newbie info. Very kind of you to take the time to spell it all out. I'm sure it is time consuming.

Love the poppy shade. It has a country-modern look to it, which is the look I would like to eventually capture in my home.

OMG...where did that big rooster on the board come from?? Could you just be a dove and send that to me? Let's be reasonable here...which one of us has a blog with the word "rooster" in it?? I'm just

Hi Debbie! What a great idea. I have so many lamps I could grow a lamp garden. What a fabulous way to re-vamp an old lamp, add to a new one, or change it according to the season! Thanks for sharing. I am LOVIN' the last one! XOXO ~Liz

Was in HL yesterday and took a peek at their 60% off isles again, and they had quiet a bit of rooster items. Thought to my self - bet a lot of bloggers would like to find this.:D

Can't wait to try this. So, so chic. I think I will use a sunflower instead of the rose since we are going for a Tuscan look right now. Your is lovely and what a fantastic idea.

That is such a cute and fun lamp, it just screams Debbie!!! I saw at Joann's they now have small lampshades where you remove the paper and they're sticky so you can cover them with whatever you want. I want one!!!

Cute lamp shade Deb, and I love that rooster pic in the back ground done on the old wood. You ought to know it would catch my eye. Oh, I can't wait until our pet party. Sophie and I will definately be there!

Hi Debbie! Thanks for visiting my lampshade post! What a great idea to dress up a plain shade. I actually have two like this in my living room. I've only done red ribbon tied in a bow at Christmas, but I may have to explore incorporating other colors and patterns.

Yes, hot glue guns can do so much!
