Customising a lamp shade

I've bought a lovely dark purple lamp shade for DD's nursery, and I wanted to add some details to it to make it a bit more special for her (second bub so getting lots of hand-me-downs). I was thinking of adding some silver stars and moons to it, but I don't know what kind of stuff I can use that won't burn or catch fire or anything. I'm also not very arty crafty, so if anyone knows where I can buy some pre-made decorations that are lamp safe, or what kind of material I could use to try and make some myself??

Spotlight sell tons of lovely buttons in lots of colours, shapes and sizes. Would that be an option? You could just glue them to the shade.

I just bought material and cut it to the shape and covered the old shade using fabric glue. I've done this several times......no burning or overheating.
