I originally saw this adorable lamp at Pottery Barn Kids. I loved it, but it wasn’t in our budget (Peony Shade/Pottery Barn Kids)
So I did some searching around and came up with a way to make it for less than half the price…
Here is what you will need:
-Lamp base (I used a candlestick version)
-Silk flowers (I did mine in varying shades like the pottery barn example, but this lamp would look great in a monochromatic theme)
-Glue gun sticks
This project was pretty simple. I just removed the stems from the flowers.
Next I started gluing each flower down by putting a quarter size amount of glue on the center of each flower. I had to hold the flowers in place to make sure they were hanging on. After gluing the center down, I glued some of the petals down to hold the flowers on more securely. This will have to be a visual thing because it was different for every flower.
I did this the whole way around the lamp.
My pictured lamp has a smaller shade and I did two rows of flowers. The top row took 4 flowers and the bottom row took 8 flowers.
I don’t leave this lamp on or unattended for long. I think the glue is pretty safe with the heat of the lamp but I just like to be extra cautious! This has become one of my favorite projects in my little lady’s room!
I found you on the blog class Facebook page.
This lampshade is adorable! I truly don’t even see a difference between the PBKids shade and yours! Great look at an even greater, compelling price! Amazing!
Love, love, love! So cute! I’ll have to tuck this one away till we move!
