Halloween Lamp

I found this vintage black panther lamp at the thrift store recently.  The price was $2.99.  It worked and I love vintage planter lamps.  I had no idea what I would do with it but I brought it home.

My New Halloween Lamp

Isn't this just the cutest Halloween lamp.  Perfect for the little table under the Halloween quilt.  I purchased a small lampshade at the thrift store for 99 cents.  It was covered with pink gingham fabric.  I removed the fabric and wrapped the shade in black and orange tulle.  I added a few plastic black cats under the tulle.  Both cats and tulle were in my Halloween box of goodies.   When the lamp is turned on the cats really pop.

I love my Halloween Lamp and the cost was $3.97. 

Below are two closeups of the shade before turning on the lamp.

Hi Pam,
this is the cutest little Halloween lamp that I've ever seen.
That's also a great old retro panther lamp.

This is so adorable! Love how you added the cats. Best of all, it was a good thrifty re-do!
