I, once again, found this idea on Pinterest and couldn't wait to have a reason to try it! I ended up following the tutorial almost exactly as it is written, but made a few changes. I was trying really hard to find a lamp I liked at a thrift store, but ended up finding one at Target for about the same price. My lamp shade was wider at the bottom than at the top. First, I made marks one inch apart on the top of the shade. Then, I counted how many ribbons I would need. I measured the bottom of the shade and divided that number by the number of ribbons and measured that out too. I think the bottom for my shade ended up being 1.2 inches - not much different than the top.
I cut the ribbons to about 10 and a half inches each.
Then, I hot glued the orange ribbons to the top of the lamp shade. After that was done, I hot glued them to the bottom using an angle.
I couldn't decide on a blue to use (I know the original tutorial used orange and blue too, but that is the color scheme I am going for in this room - it will all make sense in a couple weeks!), so I decided to use two different shades of blue. I hot glued them in between the oranges on the top, then weaved them down at an angle, securing them with hot glue at the bottom. The original post says to pin them in place, but I didn't think that was necessary.
After all that weaving and hot gluing, it is complete!
Enjoy your crafting!
