chandelier shades

I am completely obsessed with covering lampshades.  I finish one and start another.  I'm planning to start selling them in August so get your requests ready.  
I had a very plain chandelier that was begging for shades.  I got these little ones at Lowe's.  You can find all sorts of good stuff there.

To cover the shade, I used the method that I showed here...http://jennicanknit.blogspot.com/2012/07/recover-lampshade.html

Spray adhesive makes your job really easy... just do it outside so you don't get everything in your house sticky (I may or may not have done that!)

I had to include the above shot because I looooove those shoes.

 I used tacky glue for the ric rac and the trim because I couldn't find my glue gun.  It worked really well and dried clear. 

While the shades dried, I added this old Christmas garland to the chandelier.  I like to bling it up.

Finished!  Have a crafty day!


  1. Very nice! The Christmas garland makes it perfect! I've only used spray adhesive once and I used it in the house because I was in a hurry. Ha-ha! It turned into a WASTE of time in the long run since I got it all over me and everything else! ♥

  2. I'm scared of spray adhesive...I hate being sticky! =D Cute, cute chandelier! =D

  3. Darling lampshades! I also love those yellow sandals in one of the pictures. :)

  4. The chandy came out so cute with those pretty shades and the added bling!

  5. Jenny they came out so cute ! Good Job ; ) V

  6. What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon... pretty yellow shows + lovely little lampshades sounds like a perfect way to spend the day!!!!
