Dyed Ombre Lamp
Materials: HEMMA Base Lamp, IKEA shade (about 1 yr old) but any cloth IKEA shade could work
Description: I ombre dyed a lamp shade and painted the base for a lamp makeover! I started with a 5 gallon bucket (which is a must need for crafters) and filled it with a tiny amount of water.
I wanted a turquoise color so I mixed Blue and the Green Dye together in my bucket. Then I placed my lampshade into the dye bucket, moving it up and down in the dye a few times to get it good and saturated.
I left it there for about 30 minutes, then added a little water. I continued doing this same thing throughout the day. Diluting the water with each step is what created the ombre effect.I also taped off the base cord and top of the lamp and gave it a few coats of gold stray paint.
