Once upon a time there were two lampshades, identical twins.
The other one? Waited…
Then one evening when it was getting dark and snowing outside, she had some visitors: a black grosgrain ribbon, square flat backed gems and a glue gun.
30 mins later her transformation was complete.
Here’s how you can recreate this look:
1. Adhere the ribbon to the bottom edge of the shade.
2. Layout the gems on the floor to get an idea of spacing. I kept about an inch in between two gems and almost used 3 packs (of 24 gems each) for my lampshade.
(Gems: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Simplicity-Crystal-Square-Gem-Stones/26853603. Lampshade was the original shade that came with my lamp: http://www.roomstogo.com/product/Lamps/Jasmine-Lamp/90131980/).
3. Again using hot glue gun, adhere the square gems on top of the ribbon.
That’s it. As easy as 1-2-3.
I love how it adds a dash of glam to our bed side table without being too girly-girly. And the possibilities are endless – just change the color or width of ribbon, color or size of gems.
Hope you like it.
