Lampshade Makeover

I heart burlap,
but you already knew that.

This is how the sorry lampshade started. 
I previously covered it with this corduroy fabric and I've hated it ever since. 
Then I started to cover it with some burlap (love), but got distracted.    
Last Monday my friend came over and wanted me to hem her jeans.
I told her I would but only if she would finish covering my lampshade. 
Nothin' comes for free around here!
So then it was a burlap lampshade and it was lovely,
but it needed a little something. 
Maybe a freezer paper stenciled number? 
Or some fabric flowers? 
I remembered seeing a tutorial somewhere...
Linda!  Yes!

Much improved right?
