A simple white lamp shade is transformed into an adorable decorative accent with the addition of some simple mini granny square crocheted trim! This crocheted lampshade trim project is the perfect way to add some color to any room, and to have fun crocheting with color combinations that you love. Not to mention that it is a great way to use up left overs, and would make a great holiday gift that has a touch of handmade that can be made in an evening.
You can choose to sew your trim to the lampshade, or apply just a few tiny dots of hot glue so that the trim can be easily removed in case you want to use the lamp in another location.
