A no sew lamp shade re-do

Well I am crazy crazy for bold patterned fabric right now.
Andddd I am having fun incorporating it in all different areas in my house!

including my old lamps.
lets talk lamps.
I hate my old lamps--this guy was from ikea....from about a million years ago...
and it needed the shade face lift.
I wish I had a million dollars because I LOVE new lamps and would love to by about 150 of them.
I can honestly say that yes---15 lamps is about what I could realistically use for around my house....
buttt since I can't buy all new this moment...
I use my fabric anddddd make my old lamps a bit more desirable.

All I used was:
-fabric, a glue gun and spray adhesive.

I had fun using spray adhesive for the first time---wow did that make covering the shade simple!
I just sprayed and wrapped the fabric around.
Then I trimmed the excess fabric.

Next I folded the seam and glue-gunned it nice and tight.

Then I trimmed and wrapped the edges and glued down.

so so simple.
nice and inexpensive.
anddd I like the lamp a lot more than I did.

kind of a fun fall fabric right?!

I am sharing my lamp makeover at a few of these wonderful link-y parties!
I hope you are all getting excited to link up your wonderful ideas starting tomorrow (Wed.) night!!!

My fall mantle--and some fall inspired decor!

Okay friends are you ready for picture over load?!
Soo do you remember my make-shift mantle that was all decorated for spring/summer with a very nautical feel?!

well we have a new feel---a fall feel going on now!

And I think I am really enjoying this new look.

I love change.
(if you want the tutorial for how I made my fall sign--click here.... I used dollar canvases and up-cycled them!)

I love these pedestal bowls---I hoard them. 
I buy them up from thrift shops like nothing!
I like them white and light buttt they got hit with black spray paint for the season.

I had some fun making the wreaths also!

I made all 3 for less than 5 dollars!

They are fabric wrapped, then tulle wrapped.
Then I added some fun fabric flowers and vintage buttons!

annnd my new favorite fall decor item EVER---pheasant feathers!

I love them!  
I love how they frame out the wreath and everything on the mantle.

Andd how they add to a collection of white pumpkins.

what do you think?  
I can honestly say that I didn't spend more than 10 dollars on my fall decor---which makes me even more excited than anything!

I even used some burlap coffee sacks to add to the decor.

Kind of fun right?!
What do you think about my fall love for pheasant feathers?!  

I am linking up to a few of these wonderful link-y parties!!!
