It’s Tuesday Morning! It’s a lamp shade.

Good morning Tuesday Morning fans,


I am in the process of helping my best friend redecorate her new house.   We are going room by room. Currently we are working on the living room.  Since we are on a budget I am doing some recycling, some DIY projects, and tons of painting. So if we can reuse something she currently has, we are going to bring it new life by just updating it.

One of my favorite things to make over is a lamp.   Since she currently has 2 small table lamps in the living room already, all we did to those was update the paint color and add new burlap shades from Tuesday Morning.   Living rooms need a lot of light,  so for the 3rd lamp I found the perfect floor lamp from Tuesday Morning.  The lamp is the perfect size, shape, and color.. but we didn’t like the shade.

Easy fix. Buy the lamp from Tuesday Morning and just give the shade a make over.

Here is the lamp shade before.

This is the shade that came with the floor lamp from Tuesday Morning… love the lamp. I just updated the shade.

Here is the lamp shade after.

The shade is back on the lamp and looks great in my best friends living room. I will now make a pillow cover to match the shade.

Did you know Tuesday Morning has a huge selection of lamps, lampshades.. and yes fabric?    So stop by and pick up the perfect fabric to create your own no sew easy fabric tie lamp shade.
You can find a variety of tie ideas all over the web. The direction of your ties has a lot to do with the style of the shade.  Check out my Pinterest boards for some ideas.  I have thousands of ideas I have pinned.

First take everything off of the lamp shade. Start pulling all the fabrics you want for the shade.

I used 8 different fabrics for my shade. I randomly tie them to each end. You can use as many patterns as you want.

It’s Tuesday Morning! Pumpkin time.



Today’s craft project using Tuesday Morning’s orange, green, & brown cardstock is this paper rosette pumpkin.

This paper pumpkin idea has been around for years.   You can find many variations of it all over pinterest, blogs, websites, etc…

I have no idea who came up with the original design.. but they are a paper genius!

This rosettes can be made using many different products
Here are a few different tools you can use to create the rosettes.

Martha Stewart Score Board
Basic Paper trimmer w/ the score tool instead of a blade
Basic Paper trimmer w/ a bone folder
Ribbons and Rosettes Cricut Cartridge
Close To My Heart Artiste Cricut Cartridge

Tim Holtz Rosette Dies work for smaller rosettes
or the good old fashion fan folding technique using your fingers

Of course I am sure there are many other things you can use to create a rosette.. this is just a list of ways I personally make rosettes.

Which ever way you decide to make your rosettes you will get the same effect as long as you have multiple sizes of rosettes.  Layer any way you want.

My stem was created by rolling brown cardstock.  I have also made them by using sticks or rolled burlap.  Add real burlap, twine, sticks, or rope for more textures.

Mine is inked w/ vintage photo distress ink and finished off with a spray or two of glimmer mists

Get creative make it as big or small as you want.  Stock up on orange cardstock from Tuesday morning.  You can get 25 sheets for $1.99 that is a deal you can’t beat.

Here is another pictures of some of their holiday paper craft products you can stock up on .
