Ana Washington Lamp Shades September 03rd, 2018 - 04:30:52
These are the most adorable little classic candlestick lamps, and you just need little small shades like these ones, and you can customize them with ribbon and trim to this example. We left the shade, just as is and added a small band of grosgrain ribbon at the top and bottom, and this one, which has a beautiful sort of pleated effect I'll, show you how to do that. All you need is a whole whack of, in this case, sort of a plum, color grosgrain ribbon, and you just wrap it around and around to create this beautiful pleated effect, and you can overlap each section of ribbon so that you end up seeing about half of the width of each strip and you can pick any color ribbon to suit your room, and I'm just going to secure this last bit of ribbon with a dab of hot glue.
Just a little dab and press it in and using a bull clip like this kind of helps, secure and position the ribbon while it dries. So now that this is dry, we've got a perfect adorable pair of candlestick lampshades that I think, will look fantastic in any room and I've got one more great idea to show you. I've got a really basic white lamp here and I'm going to customize this shade with some fantastic ribbon, just pull it off, so I can work on it and this light bulb is from Home Hardware and it's brand new technology.
It's 19 LED light bulb, and it's shaped just like the traditional incandescent light bulbs which are about to be phased out, it's mandible and why you want to pick this up is because it lasts 50,000 hours instead of only 800 like the old light bulbs. I'm working with a pretty simple lampshade again. I think this one cost about 15 dollars and I've got some beautiful ribbons and trims here, and I found these at Mokuba. It's a great Toronto store that has really specialty ribbons, but you can find your own specialty ribbon to really jazz up a plain shade like this and I'm going to glue it on. I sort of start with the natural seam of the shade. Just put a small dab.
A little really does go a long way, and I like to use the seam of the shade as a guide to keep things straight, and you don't need to put glue along the entire ribbon. You just want to add little dots every so often maybe every 10 to 12 inches and just hold it for a few seconds to make sure it's firm and try to keep the ribbon fairly taut so that you don't have it sagging once you're finished, I've come to the end and I'm just going to trim off leaving a little bit of excess for myself and then what I'm going to do is use the glue gun to create a little-finished edge by folding it back on itself.
That's set for a moment and then another dab of glue, a hold it all in place, and there you go now. I think this is fantastic just on its own, but another thing you might want to consider trying is adding a little bit of extra embellishment. Now this is again for Mokuba to really find metallic, almost a lace trim and what you could do for a very sort of pretty decorated space is layer up your trims and use the glue, gun and layer. One smaller trim on top of another, like that. That'll be great for a kid's room, but I think I want to use this more understated natural jute twine and instead of layering it up, but I'm going to do is leave a gap and add it just above just get it in there.
