I am linking up with Tara at Fourth Grade Frolics for Monday Made It again this week.
So, needless to say, I have not been in school mode yet, though I go back on Thursday of this week. So, this week I worked on making my little girl's lampshade to match her room. You could do this in your classroom with a lamp to spruce it up a little too.
First, I gathered my supplies: lamp shade, ribbon, scissors, and glue gun. We really didn't want to buy her new lamps since we already had these, and it would all work out perfectly.
Then, I cut the ribbon to size after measuring around the top and base of the lamp.
I started with the top, which was so much easier. I put a dab on hot glue on each of the seams and the put it down around it. Here is my finished product of the top.
The bottom was almost a fail, but I like it OK. I had to actually put hot glue everywhere on the bottom to hold the ribbon. I had to have my husband turn it as I did it, or it was a complete mess. I have learned to not do this on the fluted lamp shade if I want it to be flat. So, it looks like a ruffle instead of being flat.
So, it was not a complete fail. It adds a touch of purple to her room, which was what I wanted.
What have you made this week? Link up with Tara at Fourth Grade Frolics and let us all know!
