I found this little shade in the clearance aisle at Target. Kinda cute...but not what I had in mind. So I took a lesson from Nester's ragamuffin garland.
I cut and ripped and tied until it was all fluffy and fun.
Then I tied it around the bottom of the shade and added a painted wood initial. Edited to add: This is NOT a fire hazard. The light bulb is at the very top of the shade, no where near the fabric.
When your kiddo is ready for something new, it makes a fabulous party hat!
