Anthropologie Inspired Lampshade

Tawk of the day::  Love the Lord your God with all your <3

So I am so happy to be *finished* with this so-called masterpiece I am about to reveal..
It took me 299949 hours to complete and I now feel like a sew-pro.
Ta-Da!! ..

Remember the inspiration?..
This sucker is $88 !!!

My version//My price::
Besides my time, ..Absolutely FREE.
I had EVERYTHING on hand, I didn't have to go out and buy anything for it.
Here's how I did it, and what supplies you will need:
--old lampshade--
--hot glue gun--
--twine/rope/etc.. for the border--
--sewing machine--
--lotsa thread.. in whatever colors you want to do it in--


  1. That turned out so good!!! And the price is sooooo much more up my alley :)

  2. Thanks so much, Megan! It was VERY easy to do, but took longer than I had planned lol.. Maybe it's cause I just don't sew that much.. And I agree, I would never pay 88$ for a shade, so making one next to nothing in expenses is wayyy more up my alley, too!

  3. Found you via Flamingo Toes!!
    Thank you so much for sharing, I think that even I could swing this project!! I pinned it too!
