Easy Vintage Stamped Lamp Shade

This DIY has got to be one of the eas­i­est cre­ations I have made in a while. It took me all of 5 min­utes, maybe less to com­plete this DIY. It all start­ed with a plain lamp shade, stamps and a love for all things vin­tage. If you have these three things handy then you too can reacre­ate this look.

What you’ll need: This post con­tains affil­i­ate links.

Sim­ply take your stamp, press it into the ink and stamp away! That is it! If you are want­i­ng this vin­tage-type look, I advise you to look for stamps with flo­rals, or blocks of script. Don’t be afraid to do this hap­haz­ard­ly, upside down, side­ways, over­lap­ping ect. There is real­ly no way to mess up this look. If your heart desires a more uni­form shape, I say go for it! Try dif­fer­ent pat­terns and shapes on a piece of scrap paper first.

When I demostrat­ed this live on Face­book, many were ask­ing about seal­ing it. I decid­ed to use Mod Podge in a flat fin­ish by paint­ing it on with a paint­brush. Just to be on the safe side, I think I would rec­om­mend a spray seal­er just to ensure there would­n’t be any smear­ing. All in all, this method worked fine and real­ly seemed to enhance the col­ors.

It real­ly is that easy!
