Randi's Room: Flower lamp

I've still managed to find the time to do a craft here and there and yes I'm STILL working on Randi's room. I only need to do a few more things to call it complete.

My latest project was this cute little lamp and shade for her desk. I found the lamp at our local DI and spray painted it the color I wanted. As for the shade, I picked it up at Hobby Lobby. It's a sticky shade that you can cut out fabric for, but I had something else in mind. Some of you may be frequent visitors to pottery barn and have seen lamps similar to this. That's exactly where I derived my inspiration. Just get the silk flower of your choice, take each one apart discarding the plastic pieces. I kept the centers but trimmed the stem so I could lay the flower flat. Glue all the different layers together and then to the lamp in rows with a hot glue gun and voila! So simple, but so cute.
