Do you ever see something you HAVE to HAVE….then look at the price tag, and say to your awesome self, “I can TOTALLY make that!”? That is exactly what happened when I saw this whimsical flower lamp in Pottery Barn Kids. I knew it would be perfect in my daughter’s room, but I could make it for A LOT less using flowers from my local craft store and lamp I picked up on clearance.
This is such a quick, basic craft, that the pictures are really all the instructions you need. I’ll mention a few tips as you scroll through this visual tutorial!
Let’s Do This!
Pull the stems and plastic pieces from the blooms so you have separate fabric petal pieces. NOTE: I totally underestimated then number of flowers I would need for the lamp. I would suggest cutting a circle about the size of the flower you want (or have), and then figure out how many you will need. Grab your weekly craft store coupon, and go get some beautiful stems! Then….tear them apart!
Layer and glue the petal layers – just at the center – then finish it off with a sparkly rhinestone.
Use your irreplaceable glue gun to attach the flowers to the lampshade – and you are done!
It looks so pretty lit up in a special little corner of the room.
Now, wasn’t that way more fun than just handing someone your credit card? I hope you enjoyed this super quick and fun project – I’d love to hear your comments below!
