Are you tired of your boring generic lamps, but don’t want to spend a lot of money on buying new, fancy ones? Well, why not do a little lampshade makeover? You can easily transform the look of your lamp by spicing up the lampshade. It doesn’t have to cost a lot of money and the best part is that it’s completely custom, and will look so unique in your home. Here are some great DIY lampshade makeovers you can try:
1. Pom Pom Shade
This makeover is so simple, yet so incredibly adorable! Pom poms are very cheap, in fact, you can oftentimes find them at the dollar store. Take some pom poms in whatever color you think will look best on your lamp and hot glue them to the shade. It’s a quick craft that won’t take very long, but will have an awesome outcome.

2. Fabric Re-Do
This lamp looks so high fashion, but is an easy DIY project with some fabric and a plain lamp shade. If you’ve been looking for a great patterned lampshade, but haven’t been able to find exactly what you’re looking for, find the perfect fabric instead. There are many more fabrics to choose from than there are lampshades. Once you find the perfect fabric, you can easily recover the lampshade. It’ll make it look like a designer lamp without the high cost.

3. Flower Embellishments
How beautiful and creative is this lampshade? It’s so feminine and would be perfect for a little girl’s room. The great part is that it can be as intricate or as simple as you’d like to make it. Crafts stores often sell pre-made felt flowers that you could just hot glue gun onto the lamp. Or, if you’re more experienced in the crafting world, you can make your own felt flowers and embellishments. Either way, it’ll really add some pizzazz to your room.
