Simple Lamp Makeover

I bought some lamps and shades at Target for my girls rooms. All they had was white lamps and pink lamp shades.

They would be fine like this. But the girls wanted to add some ribbons. So here is what we did. The little girls room has pinks, blues, oranges and greens. They both picked out pink and blue for their lamp. Cha~Cha wanted Purple. She has pink in her room, but we will be painting purple walls to match her cute new bedspread. So she chose purple.

I hot glued the ribbon on both ends of the ribbon leaving the part on the shade somewhat loose. Sooooo.... the girls could do this (below) if they wanted. A place to keep their hair clips. 

It would also be fun to slip some pictures in there too! We may add some lace or beads to the bottom, but as for now we wanted something quick and simple.
