A Holiday Lamp Makeover Challenge With Lamps Plus!

Decorate a Fillable Glass Lamp for Christmas I know, I know…it’s August, and I’m about to drop some Christmas on you…what in the world is going on?  I am participating in a super fun challenge with some of my favorite blogging buddies, showing you a lamp makeover!  Lamps Plus  and Hometalk challenged us to take the beautiful Fillable Clear Glass Ovo Table Lamp and dress it up for the holiday season…I can’t resist a challenge, so I jumped at the chance!

lampsplus I was supplied with the lamp, and couldn’t wait to get started.

The lamp alone without any embellishment is absolutely gorgeous, don’t you think?

How to Fill a Glass Lamp I started by taking the lamp base apart.  You simply unscrew the bottom for filling…super easy!

Lamp Shade Embellished With Snowflake Banner and Washi Tape I made a cute bunting with two pieces of scrapbook paper and washi tape to embellish the shade…cute, huh?

Decorate a Fillable Glass Lamp for Christmas I love the way those ornaments look in the bottom of the lamp.  I can leave my lamp just like this throughout the entire Winter season this way, and it fits right in with the rest of my home’s decor!  I think what I love most is that it’s temporary!  I can change my lamp with the seasons!!!

Now the lamp totally works for Summer!  I cannot wait to switch it up for Fall!!!

    This looks great–LOVE the bunting. For Halloween, I would fill it with bleached chicken bones. But that’s just me.

      Hi, Yasmina! The bunting was made with washi tape (the gray and white polka dot tape), which is adhesive, but not too sticky. It stuck to the lamp shade, but is easily removable :)
