2. Blooming Lampshade

I really, really love this idea! You can start by making the leaves first. Just cut some leaf shapes out of thin cardboard, then trace the outline of your leaf with hot glue and simply wrap some yarn around it until you reach the top. In order to make those beautiful fabric flowers, you must cut a strip of fabric, fold it in half and then just roll it quite tightly until it looks like a cinnamon roll. When it gets to be the size of a dime, just secure it with some hot glue and “twist the fabric occasionally as you continue rolling it up.” When you finish with that, just fold the end of the fabric strip under that awesome rosette you’ve created and secure with some hot glue. Then, simply let your creativity flow and just glue the leaves and the pretty flowers on your lampshade.
