Lamp Shades- The dollar store craft challenge-
So on one of my new favorite crafting blogs thecsiproject.com they have a contest going where you have to make a craft from stuff you find at the dollar store... So away I went. The kids found treasure after treasure but I had the hardest time figuring out what I wanted to do. Then I stumbled across these little night light lamp shades. But the fabric and trimming on them were UGLY!!! So home they went...
Step 1- Rip off all the creative fabric and trimming choices. Then I used that piece of fabric as a pattern to cut out from some reminents I already had. (This one goes in my kitchen)
Step 2- I then glued on the fabric and then some ribbon on the edges!
I also had to do some repair work to make the ring stay in the shade! Thank you hot glue!!!
And voila! Here is the finished shade for my kitchen. Super cute and Super Easy! And it only cost me $1 to make! Can't go wrong there :)
And here is the one I made for my little fellas room...
