I was messing with my 99Cent rolls of crepe paper the other night, and ended up making a bunch of these pretties to brighten up my room.
Super easy..nothing to it. just need a flower stem, some double sided tape, ...some wrapping and (gathering) .. as you go.
Crepe paper is so inexpensive and comes in so many fun colors now. ( these are my favorites right now.. as you could image) lol SPRINGY colors
Melissa Frances also has some of this yummy stuff in larger sheets.
You can really have some fun with this stuff!
Okay.. I have to show you my new "re-do" project. I should have taken a "before" photo...but I was on a mission.. and started tearing right into it. lol I found this vintage headboard lamp at one of my flea market haunts. It was covered in a orange and red floral fabric. I love to read in bed... and have really wanted one of these. At $4.99.. the price was certainly right. lol I was hoping I would be able to get the fabric off , easy enough so that I could cover it with something simple that would match our bedroom. It came off pretty easy. I had an extra pillow sham from this bed set , so I used it to recover the lamp..
I was pretty happy with it... simple and practical.
Then I googled "Vintage Bed Lamps" and saw THESE!!!!
Wow... mine looks pretty plain now huh? lol
But I still like it for now. I can always add to it right?
I've been "in" again alot these past few days... because we had a bit more snow..but alot of BLOWING! The roads were traitorous!
