I can't leave a lampshade alone! Adding ribbon is so cheap and easy and I like the detail it adds to lampshades, curtains, bedding, etc! For these I simply used one dot of hot glue on the back seam - that way the ribbon could easily be removed later (if I ever want) without ruining the entire shade.
This is the before and after on my bathroom sconces.
I love how ribbon was used to dress up these curtains. The pictures are from houzz.com. Houzz is a website with literally thousands of pictures of homes - exteriors and interiors. It provides TONS of inspiration. You can create your own idea book and save all the pictures you like in it. Careful - it can be a huge time waster!
