DIY Series: Crisscross ribbon lampshade!

How awesome is this DIY? We love ribbons and wonderful DIY ideas that are much easier then they look! We’d probably pick something a but more subtle in the colour palette, but really anything is possible!

For this DIY makeover, you’ll need:

  • Drum-style fabric lampshade; shown is a 13-inch shade (shade height is 9 inches)
  • Approximately 10 yards 5/8-inch-wide satin ribbon in first color of your choice
  • Approximately 10 yards 5/8-inch-wide satin ribbon in second color of your choice
  • Hot-glue gun
  • Hot-glue sticks
  • Tape measure
  • Pencil
  • Straight pins

Shouldn’t be too hard, there are only 6 steps!

 

We found this lovely tutorial at Midwest Living…awesome right?

    I love this DIY lampshade, and not because it matches my logo.
