Hanging Lamp Shade Picture Display

Here's a creative way to hang your pictures, notes-to-self, trinkets, quotes, or pretty much anything else.

I took a lampshade, draped a doilie over the top and hand stitched it in place, added some trim around the edges, and finished it off with a flower corsage and a handful of buttons.
I used drapery clips to attach the things. You could also use clothespins.

You can hang this with a plant hanger like I did, or, you could leave the trim off the bottom and just set it on your desk.

I assure you, this is much more darling in person. In fact, I'm trying to convince myself that I need it in my home more than I need to sell it in the store. We'll see where it ends up. :)

If you wanted a more discreet hanger option, you could use tree ornament hangers. They have some beautiful ones to choose from this year. I almost bought some yesterday - could kick myself that I didn't. 


  1. This is sooooo pretty! LOVE it!! That black metal peeking out through that lace is... racy. :)


  2. The skeleton of your lamp shade is so pretty, I'd like it on it's own. This is a darling idea.

  3. That is the prettiest lampshade frame I have seen. You have dressed it so cute and given it a great function too. Hope your opening day is coming along good.

  4. Oh Polly! I'm so excited! I think I've talked my husband into taking me to the Arts & Crafts Festival in Bell Buckle 10/16!!! If we do, we'll be sure to visit your new shop and say 'hello'.
    Hope to see you!!

  5. that is really pretty and a great idea too.
    thanks for sharing...if you put it in your shop it won't last a minute (())

  6. Its so beautiful.ou will find a large selection, with of acrylic displays ready for use in various countertop, wall-mount, floor or slatwall display settings.

  7. I am catching up with my blog reading as I have been occupied with opening a business too.

    Best of luck to you.

    I hope you'll stop by and enter my Fall Giveaway.

  8. Lovely blog with good ideas to share. I have been following for a while. I have a dilemma today though. I have recently viewed a blog post, made a mental note to go back to it, then forgot which blog I was on. So, my question is have you recently posted a blog about a new rug in your kitchen? Thanks.

  9. Hi Polly,
    What a great idea and so creative too..I love it..
    Have a sweet day,

  10. What a great idea...I can't blame you for wanting to keep it! I have been looking for those drapery clips forever and have yet to find any,
    Smiles, Karen

  11. Oh I love it.....if I were you I would definitely keep it.

    Good luck with your Grand Opening Celebration...Wish I lived near your area.
