HGTV Fabric Poppy Power

Today I am going to share two super easy projects using HGTV’s Home Fabrics Line sold by Joann Fabrics. And then I have super deal for you! Below is a great coupon for 10 % off the total purchase of HGTV Fabrics and Trims so you can get your hands on these beautiful products.

First up is an easy way to dress up a plain lamp shade into an amazing focus piece for your home.

Fabric Lined Lamp shade

DIY Lined Lamp Shade

Materials: HGTV Poppy Power Fabric in Yellow, Tree Studio High Tack spray glue, pencil, rotary cuter, mat and ruler.

Place the shade on the fabric and trace an outline of the shade on each side with a pencil, rolling it as you trace. Take your rotary cutter, mat and ruler and cut the fabric. I cut  1/4 of an inch less than the guide line on one side to make the fabric fit perfectly on the inside of the shade. Spray your glue on the inside of the shade lightly. On the design side of your fabric spray an even good amount of the glue. Line up your fabric on the seams of the shade and slowly press and adjust as needed. Pressing gently, smooth out all of the bubbles and folds. Place it back on your lamp and watch it bloom! This came out so pretty I love it!

Next is a super easy way to add a little color to an ordinary tray.

>Fabric Lined Tray

DIY Lined Fabric tray

Materials: HGTV Circling Fabric in Grey, decorative tray, Mod Podge, sponge applicator, rotary cutter, mat and a ruler.

Measure your tray base and cut your fabric to match the dimensions of the inside of the tray with your rotary cutter. Apply Mod Podge to the inside section of the tray and slowly line up your fabric over it. Gently smooth out any wrinkles or bubbles. Let it dry. You can then apply Mod Podge over the fabric to seal it so it can be wiped clean. I like the fabric texture so I did not apply it to mine. And that’s it! Super easy and super cute makeover!
