Breathe new life into vin­tage lamp shades, for a hang­ing cen­tre­piece or dé­cor fo­cal point that will wow

Find a few lamp shades

Browse your lo­cal char­ity shop (or per­haps Nana’s stor­age box!) for a col­lec­tion of lamp shades – ide­ally in a few dif­fer­ent sizes for vis­ual in­ter­est.

De­stroy, then dec­o­rate

Re­move the fabric from the shade's frame, then dec­o­rate the skele­ton with tex­tures, colours and dec­o­ra­tive items that suit your wed­ding theme. Fi­nally, hang with rib­bon or twine.

Want to recre­ate this look? Find two old lamp shades. Re­move all fabric and em­bel­lish­ments and cover the wire base with dou­ble-sided tape. Care­fully stick live moss onto the wire and en­hance with roses (at­tached with flo­ral wire) and seed lights. We got our liv­ing moss sheets from Cre­ative Style.
