HOW TO: Button-bling lampshade makeover
Here's another one to add to your list of 'things that look better with loads of buttons on them': old lampshades. This one was spruced up by Annie on Craft Stylish, who applied the buttons to rescue the old lamp her parents had bought her from a flea market when she was a child.
The technique makes this the easiest re-vamp in the world, as all you need to do is glue the buttons on to the parchment (this should work fine even if it's partially torn), step back and admire your new lamp. I think the clear perspex and pearlised tones used here work well, but would love to see a more colourful version!
