DIY Lamp Makeover

So I think this is the easiest and quickest DIY I’ve done. It’s so simple to do but it makes a difference once is done and the best part is that is not permanent.
Materials:
Scissors
Thin ribbon of your choice
Fabric glue
Lamp shade, preferably plain color
Clips
Directions:
The first thing you need to do is measure the width of your lamp shade. Cut the ribbon according to your measurements. Place the ribbon around the top part of the shade and use paper clips to secure it.

Since the ribbon is only glued at the end and inside the ribbon only, you can easily remove the ribbon and change it up and keep your used ribbon as well. To reuse, cut only the glued parts and your ribbon can be used again for other purposes.
