Coordinately Yours - How to Print on Fabric - Spiced Apple Cider Label

Yesterday I came across this sweet (and simple!) DIY printed fabric label by my friend Julie at Coordinately Yours. It’s a project she did a couple of years ago, but I thought it was so pretty and a fun idea to try this fall! It would be such a lovely handmade touch for a party, don’t you think?

Head on over to Coordinately Yours to learn how to create your own printed fabric label!

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.

DIY Reclaimed Barrel Lamp & Wire Cage Lampshade

DIY Barrel Lamp-The Inspired RoomThis post was created in a partnership with The Home Depot

I made a lamp! I’m no longer a one hit lamp wonder. I found this small fun vintage wine barrel at a flea market for $14. Armed with the challenge to make a lamp inspired by this DIY reclaimed wood lamp, I knew that this wine barrel would be perfect for the job!

Isn’t it charming?

Here is a supply list:

Lamp socket and cord (mine is a clear cord).
5 inch harp
Small vintage wine barrel (ours is 9 inches tall)
Wire hanging plant basket (14 inch diameter).
Finial
Wire
Edison Lightbulb

It was so easy. I just drilled a hole in the top of the barrel and pulled the wires up through the convenient existing hole in the back. Then using the instructions on the lamp socket packaging, my husband wired the lamp socket.

I’m sure there is a more professional way to secure the socket to the barrel, but because I’m me, I used super glue. So far so good.

DIY Wire Lampshade

For a DIY wire lampshade I found this hanging wire plant basket at The Home Depot. We just took the insert out and chains off and turned it upside down! Easy peasy.

I had a little black finial to top it off. To secure the shade a little more, I just wrapped some wire around the cage and harp.

As a finishing touch, I added an Edison light bulb which looks pretty cool with the cage shade. The glow from the Edison bulb looks beautiful at night.

I think it turned out so cute, don’t you?
