I've seen a lot of re-purposed lamp shade forms in recent years. I even made a garden cloche with one, but here is a new, more romantic variation. This form measured 14 wide by 13 tall. It took 36 yards of 1 1/2 inch ribbon. Yeah, that's a lot of ribbon, but I love the result. Cut your strips of ribbon, in this case 39 inches for each strip. Now string it from the bottom of the shade and tie in a pretty feminine bow at the top. Repeat until you have circled the shade. This shade took 24 strips of ribbon. This one is hanging. I hung it on the patio to take the photographs.
So soft and romantic, isn't it?
I love these bows! Have a great Sunday everyone, and most of all, stay cool. Yesterday it was 104 here in sunny Southern California.
