This was so fun to alter and will add to the shabby chic decor in my living room/scrap room.
I used the beautiful
some beautiful Dentelle Rachel French Lace in Pink
from The Piece by Piece.
Here is a before photo
First I sanded it to scuff it for paint. I added 3 coats of white acrylic paint then added a coat of sealer.
I used a styrofoam cup for the lamp shade
I just cut the top and bottom rims off. Then I wrapped it with seam binding in a diagonal pattern
I cut a circle from clear packaging to add inside the cup with a hole for a candle. I don't recommend lighting a candle in a styrofoam lamp shade, this one is just for looks but I could use a battery operated tea light.
I also used some beautiful I am Roses and made some crystal drops.
