Beautiful lampshades.

I can't resist turning my plain lampshades into something gorgeous and feminine.


 I found this one in a skip whilst out walking with my Grandson. As I paused to look at it he said ''Oh No Nana'' and walked quickly down the street. I asked the friendly builders if I could take it away and looking at me sadly they said ''Please do.''

I've covered some marks with pieces of lace and added some sumptuous bead fringing using my glue gun. Finally some pretty velvet pansies finish the look.

So if you have a plain lampshade...

Just add a bead fringe....and a pretty rose....

 What a difference...

I've put together some kits so you can start to play....


  Fairy pink fringe and a cabbage rose...

Fairy pink fringe and a velvet and organza rose....


 Velvet and organza rose with Tiffany pearl fringe....
Jet and sage fringe with a Camellia....

Pearl fringe with a Camellia....

and finally three exquisite Vintage style Velvet and Organza Roses...

It's oh so easy to create that romantic vintage look, it only takes a few minutes and a little glue or stitching. 
find these in my Etsy shop.

Have fun.

Thanks Angela for your answer, it's very kind!
I look for fringes on the web, but all I found was really expensive when they're beautiful!
But I don't need it immediatly, so I'll wait.
I love what you do and your blog too
