Burlap Trimmed Lampshade

Posted by Lori:

This ivory lamp shade was dirty and plain.  My husband had picked up some burlap sacks from a farm supply store (They were on sale for 99 cents!!!) so I could use a few for decorating.  These trims were made with the seam parts of the bag.  I just cut the bottom or sides of the bag into about 2 inch strips, turned them over to the inside of the seam side, frayed the edges of the bigger, underneath piece, and hot-glued the trip on.  For the top trim, I made it ruffled by scrunching it up some as I glued.

The flower is a new addition to the scrapbooking section at Hobby Lobby.  The burlap flower is hotglued on and the organza/muslin ivory flower is a sticker.  What a quick "fix up" for this less-than-new lampshade!
