Picture of Make Your Own Leafy Lampshade for a Tree Lamp
I was working on a nursery for my son and needed a forest looking lamp to fit the Where the Wild Things Are Theme. In my seach for a lamp on various baby websites and stores, I couldn't find one I liked. I did find the base at Wold Market that I fell in love with, but all of the lampshares that had a leafy look were either glass or really expensive so I decided to make my own.

I'll try to post a step by step on the murals I did for the walls of the nursery in another Instructable.

Step 1: Supplies Needed

Picture of Supplies Needed
For this project you will need a few things:
  • lampshade to fit your lamp (any color is fine)
  • ivy or other fake greenery
  • scissors or wire cutters/pliers
  • hot glue gun
  • hot glue sticks

You can get most of these items at a local craft store or if you are lucky a thrift store to save some cash.

AWe this is so cute! I love that it's going in the nursery (the wild thing one I would assume!)

Yes it did. Thanks. We also got a max puppet that hangs from the tree limb too.
