friday creative

today's project is very deconstructed, very shabby and very carly! it makes a great shelf or table top display, a lampshade display...
supplies:
-lampshade
-sandpaper (optional)
-paint (optional)
-clothespins
-photos

how to:
-strip fabric from lampshade, exposing the metal frame.
-sand for more distressed look if desired. or apply a light coat acrylic paint if desired.
-then all you have to do is clip your photos and memorabilia to your lampshade frame. ta-da!
-in case you're wondering, i gave my lampshade a quick coat of light cream paint and topped it with my new m ball.

happy friday!
xo, carly

very cute! we did some similar lampshades with yellowed old flash cards and manilla paper stencil letters clipped to them last fall - the gal who bought them added fallen leaves and made them even better!
