Hands down, Autumn is my favorite time of year. From Pumpkin coffee to homes decorated with colorful mums, It is apparent fall is here and Halloween is just around the corner. What better way to celebrate the most fun and certaintly most spookiest of holidays than with an upcycle craft celebrating All Hallows Eve?
I visited Joann Fabric and picked up some festive material featuring very scary black cats in different poses. I thought the orange-colored background would look nicely when the lamp light shines through it.
Halloween fabric of choice
Small lamp base
Dollar Store Glass Vase (You can also use a glass jar)
Scissors/Paint Brush/thin tipped black marker
First, I wrapped the fabric around the outside of the vase and trimmed with scissors. I traced the bottom of the glass vase on the back of the fabric. I cut the circle of material out and placed it aside, I applied Mod Podge to the outside of the glass with a brush and carefully wrapped the material around it smoothing it out with my hands. I cut a piece of twine off the spool and tied it around what would be the base of the lamp. Doing this helps add a decorative touch and holds the fabric in place while drying,
I stood the vase up and applied the last piece of fabric to what would be the top of the lamp. Once applied, I covered the entire outside with Mod Podge.
Once the piece was dry, I added one additional coat of Mod Podge to the lamp and fabric. What is great about these lamps is the capability to use one lamplight base and switch out different decorated glass jars and vases to create new decorative lighting looks.
Hope you enjoy my festive feline Halloween lamp! ahhh I can taste the candy corn now!
