This week-end’s painting project sucked up all of my creative juices.
I did do something a little crafty the week-end before last.
I bought some boring lamp shades and glued some ribbon on them. Call me Martha. I should have my own show.
I wanted to glue the ribbon to the top and bottom…but I failed. Epically. The ribbon kept bunching up all weird-like. The fact that the lamp shades were cones and not circles took me down. Why must I be cheap? I should have sprung for the circular lamp shades. But vertical ribbon looks ok, right?
I learned how to remove hot glue from fabric during this epic fail. How? A blow dryer. It reheats the glue and makes it easier to remove. (Or you can stick the fabric in the freezer but I thought it was a little too weird to stick a lamp shade in the freezer). What did I do before google?
And here are the lamps shades are hanging out in the guest bedroom….with the dead-to-me macademia on the walls behind them….
Anyone else had a great idea that they failed to execute? I like to “keep it real” here on decorandthedog.
