fancy new shade

I've been meaning to repurpose this old lampshade I had, but wanted to think of the perfect and easy diy. I decided to make some stamps and paint it with a simple pattern! Here's what I did...

 You'll need: paint, foam, wooden blocks, scissors, tape, lampshade

cut out the shapes you want for your stamps. I cut five different triangles - one for each color I was going to use.

tape or glue your wooden blocks to the back of the stamps so that they're easier to stamp. I used double sided tape and it worked great!

apply paint to your stamps and go crazy! I decided to do a triangle print in sections throughout the entire lamp. I didn't cover the entire stamp fully so it created a fun little rippled effect - I kind of love the result of it.

sidenote: my lampshade came with the trim, but it can easily be achieved by grabbing a hole punch and some leather strips! I love the triangle pattern, but there's so many shapes and options you could do! I don't have a lampstand for it yet, but once I do, I'll photograph how pretty it looks with light shining through! If you use this diy, leave a comment with a link!

Happy Crafting!
