Lampshades and Other Crafts you can Make!

Both of these lampshades I made from place mats.  Materials included glue gun, lace trim and white beads along with a place mat that had reverse fabric on one side with floral motif and words on the other a few beads added to the lace..  
A old frame I painted with chalk paint and then with acrylic paint painted the basket and flowers.

An old pickle Jar.  I had previously painted the lid pink but, slowly changing my house to Shabby white with hues of blue.  I used Water slide paper and a graphic from: The Graphics Fairy.
New Biscuit treat jar for my pooches..

A simple white with silver utensil container... Using water slide paper I purchased on eBay and a font from my word document.  
Just a little bit of flair..

Going to a Party?  I went to: Brag Monday Party....


  1. Cindy,
    Very neat craft projects. I especially love the lamp shade, I never would have thought to use place-mats, what a very clever idea. Might just use that on an up-coming lamp project I have that needs a new shade.

  2. I love the French Victorian lampshade. That's what I'm redoing my office in.

    I'm having a GOOGLE + Social hop. I'd love for you to hop on over, grab a button and link up your Google +. If you don't have Google + it's ok, come link up your blog or favorite post.

    I'm also looking for Pinterest Pinners to feature every week beginning in January. If you are on Pinterest and are interested in being featured come link up! Who knows you might meet some other great pinners and gain a few great ideas.
