Extreme Lamp Makeover!

(Linking up to Night Owl Crafting - Hoo's Got Talent!)

 Actually, I've named it E.T. because it reminds me of E.T. 
 My little granddaughter, Shelby, left me this little plastic E.T. that sits in my sewing room. I really didn't think of the lamp as looking like E.T. until I finished the makeover. 

  The little LED lamp was bought in a local auction for $5.00. Of course, it was camouflage which is NOT one of my favorite choices for decor or anything really!

  I had a sample kit of Mod Podge from a blog giveaway I won a while back just waiting for me to come up with a brilliant decent idea to use it.
  Since Christmas, I have been trying to figure out some ways to spruce up my sewing room.  I had saved the selvedges from some of my favorite fabrics in a little box so it seemed like a good time to use them.
 I wasn't sure the fabric would stick to the plastic, but it did. I used the Glossy Mod Podge, and it did just fine!  So here she is! I think it's a hoot! 
 Then I coated it with the Sparkle Mod Podge to give it some life, and it worked just perfect - at least to me! I suppose you can see where some of my favorite fabrics come from.
 Thanks for stopping by. I love to read your comments!

Oh Shirley, not only is the lamp super cute but it is so clever. I don't think I would have ever thought to do that.
