Good morning Crafting friends Terri here today to share my most recent project. I have made a super cute lamp perfect for a little girls bedroom or Nursery. I was inspired by the lovely Easter themed papers below and some tired items I had at home.
I used 3 pieces of cardstock
An old Lamp
and some wooden blocks that had seen better days......
So here's how I created my lovely little lamp;
I started by sanding 3 of the wooden blocks until they were nice and clean and even, then I marked the center of the block using a ruler and pen
I then drilled right through each block so that they could slide onto the pole of my lamp
Next I used the cardstock to cover the block making sure to alternate patterns for best impact. I stuck the card on using Hi Tack adhesive, when dry I trimmed them back and inked the edges with a coordinating ink. As I covered the top and bottom with card too I need to locate the drilled holes, I did this by rubbing my fingers over the surface to find the hole and then used a craft knife to open the hole and pushed a pen through.
I painted the base of the lamp stand in a pink acrylic paint and once dry put the blocks on the pole
I added Dew drops using Dew Dew Glue to create a flowers and embellish the base, it gives an extra cute look
I brought a new lampshade that was less battered and added some pink ribbon along each corner, gluing in place with hot glue
Once dry I put the lamp back together and added the shade, I think you'll agree that it's so much cuter now.
Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope to share more fun projects with you soon.
