Super Simple Fall Lampshade


Ok I know 3 posts in one day… WOW… but I had to link up for the FINAL fall Festival at DIY Show Off!

If you saw my earlier post I told you I was looking for motivation. I got motivated enough to do one of the projects I talked about. The lampshade didn’t look fallish… but it inspired me!

So here is what I did:

Sparkly leaf garland


Drapery Clips (I had these tiny ones from Ikea that I didn’t get to use for what I bought them for)


I cut off individual leaves and punched holes in them. Then strung them through the loop on the clips. Then Clipped them onto the lampshade!

Here it is:


Here’s the other lampshade


I used sparkly leaves so that they shimmer in the light. Here is a close up of one leaf

Cute idea...the leaves are always falling at your house! They look pretty with the light shinning through them. Thanks for showing off your creation over at Made it Mondays! Jules

I have some of those clips too, they're so handy. This is a very inventive idea, so great for Fall, but I love that you could easily change it out too!
