Decorating Your Lamps

An easy thing I like to do to add some Christmas around is to embellish my lamps with things like ornaments, ribbon, and even a chalkboard like in the first picture. I love details like this. I may be the only one who notices them, but that's alright. I decorate for myself as much as I do for other people. Don't you? Have a terrific Tuesday y'all!

Oh so adorable! You know I have that rooster lamp too. I will have to be a copy cat with that ribbon - it's so cute!

Living in a house with all boys, my decorating is pretty much for me. They do like having a nice home though.

I just hung a couple of ornaments on the lamps in my master bedroom to add a little touch of the holidays in there. I do tassels on lamps, so why not ornaments!

Great ideas. I have a few Christmas lamp finials that I switch out during the holidays. They are another cute way to add a festive touch to a lamp.

I am loving your lamps! I especially love the first lamp~ the base of it is so unique! And I think that is so clever how you have added a special "trinket" to each of them! You have such a gift of making your home a beautiful place! :) Hope your week is going great! :)
