Easy, No-Sew DIY Lampshade Cover Using a Scarf


My blue and white geometric lampshades weren't quite working with this year's holiday decor, so I gave them a temporary new look using a cable-knit scarf - no other supplies necessary!
I turned this chunky cable-knit scarf into a lampshade cover with no supplies needed and no damage done to the shade or the scarf!

To make it happen, I simply wrapped the scarf around the shade, pulled the tassels through and knotted them. (Detailed instructions and step-by-step pics in my blog post.)

I added gift bows to the glass lamp bases for even more pops of color.

      Where did you find the glass lamps? I have been looking for some to put all the seashells I have collected, over the years, in as a display?

    I love the glass lamps. Where do I purchase them? I love decorating for Christmas and I have a ton of those bows and some very nice scarves. They would be wonderful in my house at Christmas.
