Craft Of The Day: Cover A Plain Lamp Shade With Pretty Doilies

There is a vintage-inspired item that's been spreading like wild fire as a crafting supply. Can you guess? Well, today's Craft Of The Day uses this to dress up an otherwise plain lamp shade. And we have to say, it does the trick! This lampshade looks amazing. Though we have to admit, we're a little shocked the transformation is due to...doilies.

This project is perfect for taking a lamp we love (but a shade we hate) and revamping it. Adding doilies gives this fixture a whole new look but costs far less than buying a similar one in a home decor store. And we love when the light shines through the lacy material and casts pretty shadows on our walls. For a full tutorial on how to make this and other great crafts, head over to A Beautiful Mess.
