Flowery Lamp

Here is a fun weekend project for a little girl’s room.  I saw a Night Light Lamp at a high end children shop a few weeks ago and decided that I could make it!  Now so can you!  The asking price for this lamp in the store was close to a hundred dollars, and we are going to make it for about twenty dollars.

What you will need:

1 Hot Glue gun and lots of glue sticks

A Night Light Lamp Shade

1 bag of small pink Pom-Poms

3 cluster of Silk Flowers ( Hobby Lobby had them for half -price today)

If your daughter has a character theme in her room, you could hot glue a small stuffed character to the base.

So here we go – Remove lamp shade from lamp

Take the silk flowers and remove them from the stems.  Then remove any plastic that is attached to the slik petals.  You want to work with only the silk petals.

Then begin gluing petals to the shade, one layer on top of each other as they were when plastic held them together.

Then glue a pom-pom in the center.

I began in the center, making a row all the way around the middle.  Then I worked my way to the edges, alternating the different colored flowers.

Should you have any questions please leave a comment and I will answer as fast as possible.

If you make this lamp shade, please post it on your facebook and then tag me!  I would love to see what you creative moms come up with!
