I found myself in the lamp department and was inspired by this shade followed by the thought "I can make that!" A little twine and christmas ornaments....that's what I'm talk'n about!
Here's the inspiration:
I remembered I had these lamps and shades in our basement. Not even the finished part of the basement, but the ready for the GW part of the basement. Not sure what I was thinking when I got them...it may have been the buy 3 lamps for the price of 1 package deal you see so often.
(the floor lamp is not pictured)
So the lamps, virtually free...the Christmas ornaments...clearance! like a buck! So I bought a bunch. You never know when the urge to create for the cabbage might happen. So I bought, well, more than 3!
I did darken/distress them a bit with some burnt umber paint. Just a wash! Actually I did this to the wooden part of the lamp as well. While the fish were drying I added the twine around the top and bottom of the shade using Liquid Stitch. Love that stuff! Make sure to leave the twine longer on the top to hang the ornament from and to tie (just like the inspiration).
Don't you just LOVE?!
