Flower Lamp | DIY Tutorial

LampGlamourShot

 

With all of your spring cleaning, it can be nice to include some fun projects to mix things up and liven up your home. And what’s a better way to add a little life to a space than with some flowers?

This flower lamp adds a feminine touch to any room, and is a great addition to any princess or flower-themed space, making it a great gift for kids, too!

I love this rose ribbon because it’s so versatile; any leftover scraps from this project can be sewn onto cardigans, used to adorn headbands, added to jewelry, and so much more.

 

Materials

1 Lampshade
5 yards of Je t’Adore Rose Ribbon in Light Pink  (amount may vary depending on the size of your lampshade)
1 bottle Super New Glue

Instructions

  1. Start at the top of your lampshade. Wrap the ribbon around to create a full, snug circle that fits around the lampshade. It may help to mark where the ends meet so you remember where to cut!
  2. Cut the ribbon at your desired length. Make sure to snip in a place where you’re not cutting a flower in half!
  3. Put a dab of Super New Glue  at one end of the ribbon.
  4. Hold the ribbon to the lampshade where the dab of glue is for about 20 seconds, allowing the glue to dry.
  5. Repeat steps 3 & 4 with the loose end of the ribbon.
  6. Repeat steps 1 through 5, moving down the lampshade until it’s covered in flowers. Make sure that the ribbon stays snug, and doesn’t overlap, so that the design stays looking clean.

This project is great because it’s easy for kids to help out (just be careful with the glue!), and it’s a quick way to give new life to an old lampshade in your house.
