I love a good and creative project, and today I am sharing this DIY Ruffled Lamp using Wire Ribbon. When I thought of this idea, I could hardly wait to get working on it so let me share it with you and walk you through a basic tutorial.
here are the TWO BEFORE’S this is a “9” year old lamp that I have had stored away.
WALMART yep… you heard me Walmart ribbon all right.
It did take 5 rolls to make this…. Still $16.00 bucks give or take…. for this lamp is fine by me. Its one of a kind and made with CHIC LOVE….. LOVE IT!
HOW TO: I cut the wire off one side, one end to the other. Then on the other side of the ribbon with the wire, I snipped it until the wire was exposed and pulled the ribbon creating a ruffled look.
so it will look like this.
Then layer by layer I hot glued the ruffle ribbon on …. and OUCH (profanity was used) got one bad burn. OH’ WELL as my mother always says…. “BEAUTY IS PAIN” HA!
To look like this. Also I did not seal the fray with a lighter or candle, because I like the sort of torn rustic look. You can seal the edges if you prefer.
Krylon Catalina Mist came to the rescue on the base. I did a clear shiny coat over the paint too.
THANKS SO MUCH FOR STOPPING BY! I promise the Krylon Paint Giveaway is coming soon… I have one more PROJECT, my daughters pic. wall.
