Christmas Lampshade Mobile



I was shopping at the Goodwill 
when I came across this adorable 
little dark red satin lampshade.

 I just knew that I had to make something 
out of it.

So, I purchased a few ornaments 
at the Dollar Store and at Walmart.

And the fun began  . . .
I had this fuzzy white yarn in my stash.


I used my handy dandy hot glue gun
and started gluing and tying on ornaments.




I'll hang it in the house
when I start my Christmas decorating,
but for now it is hanging in my Art Barn.

I'm beginning to get in the Christmas  spirit:)

How about you?

Have a Happy Day.
Your blogging sister,
Connie :)

  1. I love your lampshade - red satin - do you think it came from a bordello? Just kidding.

    I love when you say Art Barn. I just told Steve what I want for Christmas - a house. A little garden house to hold all my decorating pieces that aren't in use. I hope I get it.

    1. Hello Lynn, thanks for stopping by and do come again. Our little bungalow has been in constant repair. If you go back to my spring posts all through fall you will see many changes. We still have things to do, but now have it at a very comfortable stage and loving it :)

  9. Hi Connie,
    very inventive christmas decoration.
    I will be starting at the end of the week.
    I don't understand the stores, when they start putting up christmas trees and gifts in the shops in October.
    happy week

    1. Hello Val, I totally agree with you. It is way to soon. They started around here before Halloween and they have a way of bypassing Thanksgiving and pulling up more Christmas. Then by the middle of January when all the after Christmas sales are over . . . we'll be able to shop for a summer swimsuit. In July when it's hot outside, the swimwear is gone and it's time to shop for back to school. What is the rush?

    1. Hi Kerin, It will be fun decorating it, but I don't go over board. Just a tree and the mantel . . . well maybe something in the kitchen window and a wreath on the door. My Steve is working on building one of those white wooden Nativities to stand up in the yard. He wanted it done by now and up right after Thanksgiving, but running a little bit behind :)

    1. I think that it is going to be quiet for us too . . . but Steve loves Christmas decorations. As long as the house is decorated and there are cookies in the oven, he's a happy camper :)
