Here you have the finished lamp shade, I decided to color the removable top of the shade in white and blue, to represent a bright and beautiful spring time sky. I had to add some flowers to the top of the shade, so I used hot glue to add some Prima flowers and a bit of white tulle in the center, now my shade is done and it's time to get started on it's base.
|Here is the shade all lighted up|
Now, lets get some etching done, after I finished my energy drink, I washed the bottle, removed the label, which I have to admit came off really easy, I used a disinfecting wipe to remove the glue left on the glass bottle from the label, washed it again, dried it and my bottle was ready for an etched make-over.
Here you see the glass bottle is filled with water, then it was placed inside the plastic container, let it etch for 15 minutes (per instructions).
