Glitter Lampshade-the easy way

 Once upon a time....
There were two, ugly lampshades.
Both had lovely bases, but the maroon fabric covering them was not lovely.
So Christine stripped them of their ugly cover and introduced them to: 
 Sparkle Garland.
 Sparkle Garland was on clearance and sad.
So Christine bought 4 Sparkle Garlands and took them home with her.
 She applied hot glue to the lampshade frame and stuck Sparkle on.
And she kept gluing and wrapping, gluing and wrapping.

 After two Sparkle Garlands each, the lampshades where no longer naked!

 Now they are romantic, sparkly, and glowing.
 Each sitting on a nightstand by Christine's bed.
