Crafty Creations: Bow Lamp

Crafty Creations: Bow Lamp

I’ve always loved how a adding a perfectly pretty bow can instantly give anything a ladylike touch. I especially adore how a bright bow can bring a sense of personality to an otherwise plain object in your home as in today’s case… In today’s Crafty Creations video I’m going to show you how to update a simple lampshade with a lovely bow. Whether you’re moving into a college dorm, settling into a new apartment, or just looking for a weekend craft, today’s bright idea is sure to give you a dose of DIY inspiration.

To recap, here’s what you will need:

  • a lampshade
  • ribbon
  • soft measuring tape
  • x-acto knife
  • pencil
  • cutting mat


Let me know what you think of today’s DIY in the comments below. If you give it a try, be sure to upload a photo of your creation to your profile page and link it below.

Happy crafting ladies!

XO Lauren

    Love this idea! I just wish that Lauren would use colors that work better on camera. It’s kind of hard to see some of the things she’s making & we don’t get the full affect, even though I’m sure it looks AWESOME in person!
