Design, DIY

the one with a diy lampshade

Sometimes I do little projects around the house, and I think to myself  “this is much too easy to put on the blog.”

Sometimes I do little projects around the house, and I think to myself  “this is too cute not to put on the blog.”

Today you get a project where I thought both of these, and I’m putting it on the blog for your enjoyment. It’s a quick and easy update for a diy lampshade .

It’s so ridiculously easy that I thought about not even telling you how I did it. But that would defeat the purpose, so here’s a quick rundown.

Supplies –

hot glue gun with glue


chiffon flowers

similar lamp


Decide what pattern you’d like your flowers to go on before you start attaching them. Very important part – please don’t forget that part. Then just put a spot of glue on the back of each flower and push it down onto the lampshade. I find 3 squirts and then a little circular motion so it covers the entire center works very well with these flowers.

I’ve used these flowers with many different projects. They’re beautiful and durable. The shop I linked above has many different styles and her turn around time is solid. She’s taking a bit of a break so try this one in the mean time.


This diy lampshade is in my office, which has become my new favorite room in the house. We’ve had the same decorations in the past 3 houses, and I’m just ready for a change. But we’re in between right now while we get to know our new area. It seems ridiculous to start making changes, but the office is all new to me. It’s my place to learn my new style and get a few changes going. My diy lampshade is the perfect addition.
