Today I am sharing a burlap lampshade diy project done with mod podge.
My last post was all about decorating with burlap.
I recently did our bar stools and thought I would continue with another small project.
I would like to tell you it was fast and easy, however I would be lying.
This project popped into my head when I woke up this morning.
I love doing lampshades as you can see from some past posts,
thought I would break out the mod podge..and get started on this new shade I wanted to tackle.
First I cut my rice bags to size the lamp shade.
I knew this would NOT be a perfect project, because if you know me, they never are perfect..bad on perfect, no perfectionist here.
Jack saw this project drying (dripping in the sink) He said Oh Mom that is pretty cool!
Project is still wet, could not wait to take pictures….another bad trait, NOT patient at all.
I used some upholstery tacks just for a touch of embellishment.
At the end of the day, and yes I say end of the day, because I think this project took me all day, I am pretty happy with it. I will see what Mike thinks when He gets home from work.
Thank you so much for visiting with me today.

I so LOVE that you are not a perfectionist because I am. I am so totally immobilized much of the time because of it! I LOVE seeing how AWESOME this looks when you didn’t freak out completely over making it exactly perfect! I’m so inspired now to just go throw one together, and LOVE IT!!! Thanks for the inspiration.
Lost all my comments with my transfer to word press:(
I like the wooden picture in the back, was it a DIY project? Do you have any information for that? I’m doing some photo to wood transfers right now and trying to find out how to make wood like nice, old, used, etc, like your wood here with the picture of the cock.
You have any ideas for me?
The rooster picture came from a local home goods store that is now out of business.
Debbie, this lampshade turned out wonderfully. Who cares if it isn’t perfect – it’s burlap! Did you just mod podge the burlap onto the existing lampshade? If so, was it a fabric shade or the cardboard type?
Hello, this is the first time I visit your site and love some of your ideas. I especially love the large rooster picture hanging and wondered where I could get a copy of the rooster to do a project for my kitchen. If you can share, I would really appreciate it. Happy crafting!
Bertha that is very old now and came from a local home decor store. However, I have seen similar at Home goods. Best wishes.
I need a new shade today, so thinking of putting my own spin on your idea. I’ve got coffee sacks, or I have a cotton feed sack I might try, just not sure I want to cut that up. Either way, you’re the inspiration.
this is my first visit to your website, but won’t be my last. I love your burlap rice sack lampshade, but I have NO idea where to find rice sacks, and I;m impatient, so don’t want to order and wait for them. They have some neat burlap at fabric stores. It’s expensive per yard, but my lampshade wouldn’t take very
much. It wouldn’t have the unique character that yours has but it would work, I think. I love the upholstery nail head idea too. I’ve been looking for some time now for a way to re-do a lampshade in my living room, and this is the best idea I’ve been able to find. Next visit to Hobby Lobby I’m going to try to find all of the items I need to re-do my lampshade. Now I have to get back and check out more Debbiedoos ideas. What a awesome site, keep posting your fantastic ideas. Thank you
