Hanky Lampshade - DIY
I woke up this morning to the sight of snow. YES, snow on the ground. It is only the beginning of November!!!! I know I have been posting Christmas DIY's and talking all excited for the Christmas season, I am just not ready for snow yet.
On Monday I took a trip to the antique store on my way home from picking up some supplies for our upcoming BE CRAFTY workshop. If you are ever in Minneapolis area I highly suggest you make a trip to old downtown Stillwater. They have some awesome antique shops, not to mention yummy cupcakes at the local Mara-Mi Anyway, while driving through I stopped quick and ended up finding a few cute hankies.
I attached the hankies to a used white lampshade I already had at home. Once I had picked out the hankies I wanted to use I used clothespins to place the hankies in place so I could get an idea of how they would look and for sizing.
I am usually changing things up pretty regularly around the house. I wanted to be able to cover the shade with the option of being able to take the hankies off . I used small amounts of hot glue in the corners of the hankies. My lampshade has a plastic covering in the inside so when I am ready to remove the hankies it will be easy to pull off and won't wreak the lampshade or the hankies.
In about 15min I had the shade covered and really like how it turned out. Just wishing I would have ironed those hankies before I put them on ..... who irons anyway ;)
