DIY Day and a College Reunion

Monday night, I got to go visit one of my really good college friends, Jessi after work! We had a good old sleepover and got to hangout yesterday! It was so great to catch up and spend some time together. Since we don't live in the same town anymore and both seem to lead pretty busy lives, we don't get to see each other as often as we would like.

Here are a couple pics of us, since I failed to take any on my visit...

Love her and so glad I got to go visit! 

And, while I was visiting, we decided to do a Pinterest project. I've been wanting a new lampshade for our living room, so I saw an idea and decided to try it!

My supplies: yarn, fabric, and a hot glue gun.

My plain lampshade before we started.

I started by wrapping the yarn around the top and bottom, 
using hot glue frequently to keep it in place.

Then, we added three fabric flowers, which we made by twisting and wrapping the fabric, again using a lot of hot glue to keep it together.

The finished look, back on my lampstand when I got home! I think it turned out pretty cute!
What do you think? Does it look ok or does it need anything else?
