{DIY} Lampshade Ribbon Trim

Happy Valentine’s Day!! A few weeks ago I posted a photo on my Instagram and Facebook asking you guys for your opinion on an update I was doing on my lampshades. I knew I wanted to add ribbon and once I had picked the ribbon I was going to use, I didn’t know whether I should do just the bottom, or top and bottom (The ribbon is being held on with painters tape.)

IMG_7477It didn’t take long for me to realize that you guys loved both the top and bottom. I have to say I am happy with the outcome (thanks!) I thought that the ribbon just on the bottom had a look of simplicity but after doing the top and bottom it seemed unfinished. This project will literally take you no time at all. All you will need is a lampshade, ribbon and hot glue. I decided to go with a white and gold Greek key print that I purchased at Joann’s.


I started adding the ribbon right underneath the top trim and where the shade overlaps. To hold the ribbon in place I simply added a dab of hot glue and pressed down.



Then I pulled the ribbon all the way around adding another small dab of hot glue about every 5 inches.


I continued this until I made my way all the way around and then added the last dab of glue to the end.


Next, I just flipped the shade and did the same thing on the bottom.
