Spooky Halloween Lampshades

Today I wanted to share a previous Halloween post that I did last year. It's a quick and easy way to add some Spook to your Space!

I have seen themed chandelier lamp shades in many magazines and am always blown away by the price. I decided to try making some of my own and discovered that felt sticks to the material of the lamp shades. As in no gluing and no sewing! A craft-iracle! Let's go!

 

I first start by doodling. Once the idea is drawn, cut it out so that you're able to make a stencil. Trace it onto the felt and cut your design out.

 


Here's a tip for tracing onto a dark color: Trace the outer edge with chalk.


 

Once the pieces are cut simply press them onto the lamp shades.

 

(Quick Question of the Day: What's Spookier: the ghost or the hot-glued gold trim on the lampshades that the previous homeowner left that I've never changed out? It's a toss up!)

 


For the ghost's eyes, I used a paper punch to punch 3 circles and used a glue stick to adhere them.



Think of all the possibilities for! Such a simple idea that makes quite the impact.





Thanks for stopping by!

I know some of you are still weekending and I'm jealous. For some reason we do not get off for Columbus Day. If you do, enjoy and make the most of it!


Happy Monday!
