A Quick DIY Project: Lampshade + Ribbon = Divine!!

I’ve had these 2 turquoise lamps with very white lampshades for the last year.  I purchased them at Homesense when I started to convert my family room colour scheme into an orange and turquoise palette.

I’ve been thinking about adding orange ribbon to the lampshades for some time and today I just went out and purchased orange ribbon from…….The Dollar Store!!  I know…can you believe it!!!  I’m still in shock!! 

All I used was double sided tape at the ends of the ribbon  to keep it secure at the seam of the lampshade.  I’m so impressed with how they turned out….and what a difference it made to the lamps and the room.  The ribbon accents nicely off the sofa cushions and my two orange occasional chairs.

Listen, I’m not a big DIYer…so I’m pretty proud of myself right now!!  Smile So tell me, do you like my little DIY project??




If your home is craving some glamour, then contact me online or in person! I’d love to help!
