Hi there Friends!
I’m all about quick and easy home decor…you may already know that. Especially when it comes to comes to holidays in which you only decorate for such a short time. Today, I’m sharing an idea with you that I previously share on Polished Habitat…They are so cute, and have such kid appeal, that I’m bringing them back out this year…
When I was flipping through my latest Ballard Designs catalog, I came across these darling Jack-o-Lantern Lampshades. Cute, huh! I thought my boys would love them, until I looked at the price…$18.00…EACH!! (Note: these were in a Fall 2014 catalog, so I’m not sure they’re still available for purchase)
My wheels started turning and I knew I could create a similar look for less…much less. Ready to see how? Okay, let’s get started…
You’ll need orange felt, small sharp scissors, and a marker. (I used my existing lampshade)
When I created these, I wanted to enjoy them through Halloween, but be able to take them down after without damaging my existing lampshades. So, I just attached them with double sided tape. The felt does not reach all the way around the lampshade, but far enough that it cannot be seen on a wall mounted sconce. For a chandelier, I would suggest purchasing felt off of a bolt.
Do you decorate for Halloween?
