Hiya Claire here again, with a table decoration with a twist.
At Christmas dinner the table is usually full of food leaving minimal space for festive decoration, so I decided to make a hanging table decoration to hang over the table whilst not being in the way. I used a Lampshade, some ribbons, some feathers & some crystal droplets from an old chandelier that had seen better days.
I hand sewed some beaded trim around the bottom of the lampshade, this was really easy as you sew between the holes in the lampshade. And then hand stitched a small pieces of an old feather boa around the top & bottom of the lampshade.
Then I tied some silver rope to each of the four struts inside the lampshade (this is to hang it with)
To make sure I got the height right I attached the crystal droplets whilst the decoration was in situ (to make sure it wasn't hanging in anybodys way)
I then cut ribbons to different lengths, threaded on the droplets & threaded them up through the lampshade & tied onto the struts inside the lampshade .
And there you go, one very pretty, very quick Hanging Table decoration. I also forgot to say it cost less than £7.50 to make.
Hope you enjoyed this & see you soon
