This adorable lamp with shade was purchased at a hobby store.
The base was sprayed green.
The shade came with lower beaded edge; however there are many beads by the yard sold very inexpensively so you could add your own.
The topper was made of the mini ladder ribbon yarn. We often have some of this yarn for sale in various colors.
To make this lamp topper (or a garter, think weddings and proms) measure around the circumference of the lamp shade.
Place rods into My Own Fringemaker in the holes that will yield the drop length desired. The closer together the shorter the drop length, the further apart the longer the fringe drop length.
Stitch elastic onto header, holding the yarn [fringe] slightly taught the length of the fringe to keep fringe from gathering up.
Place the garter onto the lamp shade.
Optional: Hide header stitching like I did. Add a little glue to header stitching and wind a couple of the yarn strings over the stitching to hide the stitching. I used glue that dries clear.
HINT: Create a lamp topper in school colors and use as a fund raiser! Or change it out seasonally for a fresh look.
This is not the easiest project, non-the-less it is a no brainer! Give it a try and email a photo of your project to share in the Gallery.
