Redeco of Kins's room - The Lamp

Another bit of redeco I did in Kins's room was to "big-girl up" her little lamp. The first pic shows the before - a John Lennon Real Love lamp. The second pic shows the after. The rest are detail shots. Whadaya think?















Details:
Lampshade: I traced the lampshade onto a big piece of paper and then used the template to cut some fabric I got from Joann's last year. The fabric is stuck on with Sticky Strip tape from SU! The flowers are a felt "ribbon" from the Michael's $1 bin. The rhinestones are Jewelry Essentials jewels. Both ribbon and rhinestones are stuck on with Glue Dots. I think there are 90+ rhinestones!
Base:
Die cuts: Flower "lace", bird, and mushroom - Silhouette; Butterfly - Cricut Tink cart.
Paper: SU! cardstock; DCWV Spring Stack.
Embellishments: Rhinestones - Jewelry Essentials, K&Co Brenda Walton; Flower foam sticker (bird's eye) - Adornit; Stickles; SU! Crystal Effects.
Misc: cereal or other misc. chipboard boxes (to give diecuts strength)

Wow. What a great lamp! You did an amazing job. How did you do the lampshade itself? What materials etc.?
Thanks for sharing!

Cory,

Thank you for reminding me to do that! I've just edited the post with details. I was in such a hurry to "get something out there" that I hadn't gotten back to updating the details yet.

Thank you for the kind words! *blush*
