lamps plus holiday challenge...clear fillable lamp

I know you think I've lost it, but I vow to be organized and on top of things for the
 holidays this year, so I'm getting my sparkle on a tad early!
hahahaha! :)
Actually, I'm so excited to be part of the Lamps Plus and Hometalk Holiday Challenge,
several bloggers were given a Fillable Clear Glass Ovo Lamp and challenged to decorate
 it for the holidays. I started out with elaborate plans to make my lamp shine and sparkle,
but came to my senses and thought like a frenzied, busy person decorating in December
 and knew you'd probably appreciate an idea for 'quick and simple sparkle' instead!


Did you figure out my simple secret filler?


1 - 6' Sequined Garland
Sequins in assorted sizes and colors, white thread, needle, glue gun 

Remove bottom plate, insert garland, replace plate!
Time elapsed - 5 minutes! :) 

Using the needle and white thread, string any pattern and length of sequins, adhere to
top edge of shade toward the inside with a small dot of hot glue.
 If you glue a few strings together at the same time it goes quickly.

I LOVE this versatile lamp, it's the equivalent of a neutral sofa, you can easily change up
your look with a few tweaks! A huge thank you to Lamps Plus and Hometalk for the
beautiful lamp and opportunity to participate.
Three lucky challenge winners will receive $500 to spend at Lamps Plus!

Very nice. Love all the sparkly sequins inside and the way you put in on the lamp shade. Love it. I visited each one of the blogs you have listed and loved Barb's at The everyday home. Very nice. TFS> ana

I love the green sparkle in that lamp. This would look great in a teen's room all year long. Fun!

What a versatile piece that would be, and even pretty if left alone! Loved your sparkly spin on this project. I can't even think about Christmas yet!

Jingle bells, jingle's never too early to start thinking about Christmas! Cute ideas!

Patty Day @Pattys Epiphanies said...

Love your version!
A few years ago I entered a similar contest. My version was the base filled with crystals. Fun lamp!

Cristina Garay said...

Hi Pam, I love the design you created on the shade! Indeed...Simple and sparkly!
I hope you don't mind me copying the links to all the other projects.

Crissy @ House of Marlowe said...

I love this idea.... so festive! Although, I have to admit that you have me hyperventilating a bit for thinking about the holidays already! Can't wait to catch up on all your great projects!

Unknown said...

Looks beautiful, I'll have to check out the other finished products!

Unknown said...

What a fun challenge and cute little lamp!

Unknown said...

Doesn't get better than quick, easy and beautiful! Looks great on your gorgeous sideboard too!

Unknown said...

Green is my favorite color! Your lamp looks awesome. ~Sonya

Unknown said...

Wow! Now thats what is called as a GREEN Bling bling move... The lamp looks so nice and it really can add grace to any room.

It is a must DIY for any experimental lover. Must-do!
Question: Can I fill it up with something else than green?

Love & hugs

I have purchased from Lamps plus in the past and have been very pleased. Their website is very user friendly, so that's a great place to start. Ordering is also super easy. Then they deliver quickly and they get the order right, all at a very reasonable cost. I had a problem with a shade of theirs once. I called, and spoke to an actual human being who resolved everything for me and sent me a new shade, no problem, and it arrived promptly, even with all the supply chain problems that seem to plague everyone else right now. What more can I ask for!
