Patterned-Up Lampshade

In the Designer's Words: "Using your Cricut, this is really a simple project. It takes a bit of time as you will have to weed quite a bit of vinyl as well as go really slow during the application. Otherwise, you will love how this lamp turns out and what it looks like when you are done! Add in a low wattage bulb to the lamp and you are ready to add this one to any room in your home.  When the light is off you get a very subtle effect from the pattern on the inside."

Just printing out a pattern and sticking it on the lamp is pretty easy. This is a creative idea, redesigning your boring lamps at home. Another nice idea is printing animal stickers for your kids lamp.
