Images removed at the request of MidwestLiving. Sorry, everyone!

Last week, we showed you how to give a thrift store lamp base a quick and easy update but what if it's not the base that needs help?  If you have a lamp with a shade that's seen better days consider treating it to this easy no-sew makeover!  

Woven satin ribbons make for a big-impact lampshade - just choose your favorite colors!  For this DIY makeover, you'll need:

  • Drum-style fabric lampshade; shown is a 13-inch shade (shade height is 9 inches)
  • Approximately 10 yards 5/8-inch-wide satin ribbon in first color of your choice
  • Approximately 10 yards 5/8-inch-wide satin ribbon in second color of your choice
  • Hot-glue gun
  • Hot-glue sticks
  • Tape measure
  • Pencil
  • Straight pins

When you're ready to rock and roll with all that ribbon, hit up Midwest Living for the full tutorial.
