LAMP SHADE ~ Before/After

Last week in an earlier blog I showed these 2 custom lamp shades that I had on my living room lamps and said a before/after waiting to happen...do you remember?
Well....today I finally got myself up to my craft room and figured out just exactly how I wanted to embellish these darling shades. These are pretty shades just by themselves..but I needed them to be 1-2 inches longer so I added some fringe...
....then some gimp at the top...
... see how lonely this lamp looks...
...and now it is so happy to be finished!!!
...here's the matching shade...

These turned out so beautiful...ARE EASY to do...just pick your fringe and gimp in the color you need...have your hot glue gun turned on and get going!!! This took me less than 1/2 hour to finish. The hardest part for me was deciding on the trims to use.
Hope you enjoyed this!
Have a blessed day everyone! Lorena
