Halloween Lampshade

It is amazing where you can get inspiration
from!  I was standing in line at 
Hancock Fabric Store buying some fun
Halloween fabrics to make napkins
and the lady in front of me got her
phone out and showed the clerk
these adorable lampshades she makes
for friends.  

Her lampshades are draped with several
fabrics, flowers, feathers, ribbons
and lots of other goodies.

So while I still had the idea in
my head, I headed straight from
the fabric store to Target to find
a lampshade that I could dress up.

And while I was at Target I found
lots of other goodies to add to
my Halloween Lamp.

I started with this plane lamp and 
began with a glue gun and started draping

I found this fun glittery spiderweb
fabric.  That was the one I was planning
on making the napkins out of.

Then I added this black netting over the
top, just scrunching and gluing to the
top rim of the lampshade.

A black boa was glued on the top rim.

Target also had these great black
roses and silver and black pom pom
picks.  I pulled those apart and glued
them on.

A little ribbon and spiders 
finish off the fun holiday effect.

Beaulah liked it so much
she wanted to put it in her

I had to remind her that she doesn't
have a bedroom!!

Aahhh!!  But I will be using it on
my Witches Party Table this week.

I will be posting this with


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.


  1. Love, love, love!! Thanks for sharing gift with us,

  2. Good Morning Jacqueline, What a lovely idea, the imagination can run wild making this lamp shade. I do have a spare lampshade I could use, now I need to find some lovely bits and pieces to create my own fabulous lampshade.
    Thank you for the idea.
    Have a lovely day today.
    Best Wishes

  3. Cute (spooky?) lamp shade! I don't think I've ever noticed the lizard on Beaulah's hat before:@)

  4. How cute is that! How lucky you were to get a chance to see her lampshade creations! You did a wonderful job with yours!
    I was at JoAnns last Saturday and saw the spider web fabrics-fun stuff! Our store was loaded and the checkout line was nuts so I didn't buy anything but I plan to go back. I had my eye on that gray loosely woven fabric too!

  5. Perfect for all your other Spooky fun:)
