I brought a set of 3
lamps quite cheap from Target a few months ago thinking I would just get
something better at a later date, but while turning them on one night it came to
me like a light bulb, I could alter them.
create this 2 ways, doing it the way I did which I must admit was a little hard
but I found it easier to judge what it would look like at the end. Or you can
decorate your paper while it is flat on your table and glue the completed item
to the shade frame.
some paper I wrapped it around the lamp, it didn't quite go all the way around
and I ended up with 2 joins so I just made sure they were both close to the back
of the lamp and tried to match the paper up as best as I could, I used 450 quick
dry glue to attach the paper directly to the shade but you could remove the old
shade and attach the paper to the metal frame.
Using one of
the wide laces Green Tara has on offer I glimmer misted them to create the
perfect colour and attached it to the top of my shade I left a small part
overlap the top of the frame to cover up the edge of the paper and give it a
neater appearance, as it was a small side table lamp you would often see the
out my flowers, all Green Tara of course. I started arranging them using a
removable adhesive, this allowed them to stay put but also make it easy to
remove to move them around, once I was happy I glued them on once again using
the 450 quick dry glue.
pieces or ribbon, a small cut off from the lace, one of the new Green Tara
Butterflies and paper swirls, then beaded trim to the bottom and finished it of
with Green Tara silver sprays and the new Green Tara Silver Diamante
I left the
stand alone as I want to add a wooden base but you can match flowers and
embellishments down the stand and to the base.
