American Girl Birthday--Part2

Today I thought I would show you a fairly quick and easy project I did for my daughter's birthday party.  I wanted the color scheme to be varied and vibrant and to carry up from the table to the chandelier.  So what better way to do that than to change out the chandelier lamp shades.  Easy!

Supplies Needed:

Self Adhesive Chandelier Lampshades (Hobby Lobby)
Ball Fringe (Jo-Ann's)
Felt flower cutouts (Jo-Ann's)
Buttons (Jo-Ann's)
Ric Rac ribbon (Hobby Lobby)
Flower ribbon (Wal-Mart)
Hot glue gun and glue

Here is the before shot of my chandelier:

And here is the after, ready for the party:

I simply unwrapped the lampshades and took the protective sheet off.  Now the lampshade's sticky surface is exposed.  I hot glued the ball fringe to the base of the lamp.  Then I adhered the ric rac and flower ribbons, just hot gluing them at the ends and allowing the adhesive of the shades to keep the rest in place.  Then I hot glued the felt flowers and buttons.  And Ta-Da...done!  Here are a couple of close up shots:
