How to make a Decoupaged Candy Corn Lace Lamp
Happy Monday! It’s all about Martha Stewart Crafts decoupage supplies today.
When I think of decoupage I always go back to that day in 1st grade when I coated my entire hand with Elmer’s glue. What was I thinking?
The only thing I was missing was painted lace which is why we are using some today for our lamp.

See the entire decoupage line here. I don’t think I will have enough day’s in the week to use all of these awesome products.
Today we will turn this boring lamp into an oversized lace candy corn. I know, I know that might seem hard but it’s easy with the materials we have.
You know I have not seen a lace candy corn inspired lamp floating around Pinterest lately so I figured I would give it a go.
The first thing you want to do is paint your lamp a light background color. Keep it simple because you want the lace to pop and not the lamp shade behind the lace.
Since a candy corn is bigger on the bottom I tried to mimic that with the lace size. This pack of decoupage lace trim worked perfectly since there were multiple sizes in it.
Once your lace is dry it’s time to start applying it to the lamp shade with the decoupage glue. This glue is super smooth and creamy and it’s easy to create a thin even coat with the decoupage brush.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and it gives you a ton of inspiration. I am certain this will look yummy with all of my Fall decor. Maybe I will try to glue lace to my hand later!
