The 365 Day Challenge

My goal is to create something every day using something from my craft cupboard. I am a self-confessed fabric addict and just love to fossick through thrift shops and find treasures.

So here goes. Live, love, recycle and get crafting.

Day 73 - Button Lampshade

I've been working on this little bit of  button goodness tonight and since it has stretched into the early hours of the morning I decided to blog it too. I was in my own private heaven with a glass of wine, peace, quiet and solitude, a little spot next to me fire, and of course, my hot glue gun.

I bought this lamp shade at a church charity shop yesterday for $7 and was feeling very excited about this project. Most of the buttons are from my Grandma's vintage button stash that I got from her not long before she passed away, so it's a lovely reminder of her and all of the things she used to make for me as a kid. I love it! It makes me smile.
