I have a couple of lamps in my house with plain white lamp shades.... BORING!!! I have been wanting to jazz them up for awhile but I couldn't quite figure out what I wanted to do... until I saw this lamp in Pottery Barn Kids. How cute to have gathered ribbon or fabric on a lamp shade. So, I thought that I would literally have to sew the ribbon ONTO the lamp shade. Well, that's just not going to work (I tried it and it just doesn't work). So, I thought I would staple it on. The lamp turned out super cute, but that was the most frustrating craft I have done in a long time. Sometimes the stapler would work but most of the time I would end up poking holes in the lamp shade and putting the staple in manually.... don't try this at home.
