She Took Red Ribbon And Wrapped It Around A Lampshade - Look At The Finished Product

Looking to add a pop of color to your home decor? One great way to do that is by getting crafty with your lampshade. You don't have to have any special art skills. All you need is a glue gun and some ribbon.

An easy do-it-yourself project can turn a bland old lampshade into a vibrant work of art. This is an especially great way to recycle any old lampshades that have gotten dingy or stained over the years. Rip off that old lampshade's paper or canvas, and grab some ribbon.

Use a hot glue gun to dab some glue and hold the ribbon in place, then wrap that ribbon around and around that lamp. Make sure you overlap it slightly to prevent any openings in the lampshade.

You can do this project with one color, or different colored ribbons. Make stripes, or make a rainbow. You might even want to try it out with ribbons that have patterns printed on them.

Upcycling that old lampshade couldn't be cheaper or easier.
