Pin It Now!
Well...Two posts in one day!!  WOW!
I just wanted to share what the outcome was from my Lamp Shade FAIL (READ ABOUT IT HERE). I was stumped as to how to recover from the outcome! NAH...I'm just kidding...I knew some kind of idea would pop it's little head up and say...HELLO!!!??
So I used the scarf that was I going to cover the whole shade with and made little 
Fringy Flowers.

This is the scarf...Or WAS THE SCARF! Muahahahah! 
Now, please forgive me about not having a "TooT" on making these little guys, but as you read about my weekend run-down (CHECK IT OUT HERE), my phone is M.I.A. therefore, all the pictures that I took to show you how I made these, are ALSO M.I.A. 
All I did was use the fringy side of the scarf and cut it about 3-4 inches above the fringe.
Then, I glued it as I rolled it.
Lastly, I opened it all up to make the flower. 
I actually used straight pins to pin it to the shade, just in case I might want to change it later! 
I am all about repurposing!
I KNOW these instructions are very vague without the pictures...As I said in my weekend run-down, I am still in mourning about losing my baby (yes, I called my phone "my baby")! Thankfully, I was able to contact my crafter in crime, Sarah, who I had sent a few pics to, and had her send them back to me!
I am just happy to have spruced up that shade with some PIZAZZ!
YOU LIKEY? I know it's "different"...but I am digging it!

Let me know your thoughts! I am thinking I might add some trim, like with ribbon or something, to the top and bottom...Or my fave...BLING!
Should I?
