Happy Scrappy Hanging Lamps

I can't tell you how many lampshades I end up with in my storage. TONS!  Some are in great shape, others are ready to be reimagined for my next video.  For these shades I wanted to create something whimsical, happy, light and magical and I couldn't be happier with them.  A few fabric scraps, faux flowers and butterflies and voila!  Perfect for a kids room, to hang on a patio or to brighten up a pure white space.  Not every shade needs to have fabric all the way around it, some look just great with a low watt soft bulb or with nothing at all.  Make something bright, my sweet friends, and always
Make Your Mark!
Simple pearl trim makes a wonderful scalloped trim

A sweet little faux bird is the perfect touch!
Bows made of simple 1" wide grosgrain ribbon

Use a super soft clear bulb to make these shades sing!

Just use what you have and it will look amazing....Promise!
