DIY Pom Pom Lamp Shade

October 17, 2017

Here is a sneak peek at one little corner of Caroline's nursery.  I bought this pineapple lamp about 6 months ago and knew immediately that it would go well in her room.  While it was super cute on it's own I thought it would be even cuter with some pom poms on the lamp shade.  

I bought a bunch of pom pom trim at Hobby Lobby before we moved to Hawaii and I decided it was finally time to use it.  I was able to find my stash of hot glue sticks but never found my hot glue gun so I resorted to using permanent glue dots, which worked well but hot glue would have been better.  Basically all I did was put glue dots all around the lower outside edge of the lampshade and then attached the trim and cut it down to size at the end.  Such a simple DIY but it's a great way to jazz up a plain ole lampshade.  Stay tuned for a full nursery reveal in the coming weeks!

  1. I LOVE this little vignette and can't wait to see the rest of the nursery reveal! One question - do you have any care tips for that bromeliad on the bookshelf? I've fallen in love with them recently, but the 2 I have bought have both gone South within weeks! (One turned brown and the other has white/yellow spots on it.) Would love to know how you keep yours so pretty and pink!! (I'm sure that beautiful Hawaii weather helps)

    1. Thank you Jennifer! Haha your question about the bromeliad made me laugh because honestly I think I've only watered it 3 or 4 times in the 2 months I've had it. I've kind of forgotten about it since Caroline is currently sleeping in our room. Maybe that's the trick? I seem to have better luck with bromeliads, snake plants and succulents when I don't pay them too much attention because I tend to overwater if I worry about them too much. So maybe less water is the key? Hope that helps!
