I got this lamp at my favorite thrift store when things were 1/2 off (I just love those days). The lampshade I got, was the wrong size, so, I traded it with my standing lamp in the living room. I still think it is a little large and I will trade it out when I find a smaller one.
I used burlap garland from Michael's and twine.
Just like I did for my burlap chair cushion, I ran a bead of glue at each end of the burlap so it wouldn't unravel. I measured the twine to fit the shade with a little left over to tie. I tied it to one end of the garland. I measured 2 1/2 times around the shade for the burlap.
I found a big needle and threaded my twine.
Ran the needle right down the middle to make a ruffle.
This is great part. I just tied it off. No gluing or permanent damage to my shade.
The shade is still too big, but, I can always adjust my ruffle to fit a smaller shade or just take it off.
I really like it and hopefully it will encourage me to find a smaller shade.
I think I have finally seen the light.
Have a great weekend.
