Map Paper Lampshade Makeover!

Hi Friends! It's Joy from Joy's here today with a fun home decor project!
Map Paper Lamp Shade Makeover #ModPodge #DIY #lampshade
I just love the Maps of the World paper by Hazel & Ruby so much! Just last week I used it to make this with it. I decided that it would be perfect for making over the very plain lampshade on my craftroom lamp.

First, I painted the lampshade.

After the paint dried I cut the map paper in strips and applied them to the shade using Mod Podge. I both painted Mod Podge directly onto the shade and applied the paper and also applied the Mod Podge to the paper and then applied it to the shade. I found that putting it directly on the shade worked best because it dried super fast on the paper and I needed time to position it. After it was dry, I added pom pom ribbon to the top and bottom edges.

I added a few tags from Teresa Collins' Pocket Dies Lifestyle collection using my Cut'N'Boss machine. Here are other projects I've made with my Cut'N'Boss. I think it's a great machine!

I added some washi tape and a few Petaloo flowers to the tags.

I hope you enjoy my project! I had a great time making it!
