DIY Gold Polka Dot Lampshade

Polka Dot Lampshade DIY

When I showed you my home office progress a few weeks ago, I totally forgot to tell you about my Polka Dot lampshade! I’ve had this lamp forever, but at some point it got a new lampshade. I kept it plain white for years, but one day last winter I decided to give it a little personality with some gold polka dot stickers. Because every now and then I decide to be all trendy. But instead of putting them on the wall, I thought I would embellish my lampshade.

I know you want to know exactly how this was done, so today I’m here with the full tutorial.

How to Embellish a Lampshade

1. Remove gold vinyl stickers from adhesive backing.

2. Stick on lampshade. You can eyeball the distance between polka dots or use a ruler if you want to be exact.

3. There is no step three. That’s all.

I know. I’m ridiculous when it comes to DIY. My talents are overwhelming, I don’t know how you can keep up with the complexity of my DIY instructions!

You can find these vinyl stickers everywhere, I think I even some saw some at Target recently. I got them from a friend who no longer has a shop, but there is a similar pack that I found online here!

Simple, affordable and totally removable if you change your mind later!

I love that kind of project.
