sat down with all my supplies- I found from another site that I needed wallpaper paste.
So I had a tub of wallpaper paste, a brush, rubber gloves, the lace, bags to cover my workspace since we were out of newspaper, and music in the background!!
I placed the strips of lace on the balloon and painted the wallpaper paste on it. I double layered some places and was VERY liberal with the wallpaper paste. I ended up using the entire tub.
I am really hoping that this works and it is a beautiful lamp. I love the vintage appeal and the beautiful whimsy and character of it. So...stay tuned for the finished product.
