Other Supplies

Lampshade, Scrap paper, Pencil, Medium to heavy weight fabric, Scissors, Hot glue gun and sticks, Flexible trim


1. Make a pattern of the lampshade: Wrap scrap paper around the lampshade. (Piece together with tape if needed.) Use a pencil to trace either the entire lampshade onto the paper or just the center section. Remove the paper, and cut out the pattern. Remember to add a little extra for over lapping at the back seam.

2. Using the pattern from step 1, cut out the fabric. Apply a coat of Fabric Mod Podge to the back of the fabric, place on the lampshade, smooth with your fingers. Add a little extra Mod Podge for the overlap back seam.

3. Use hot glue, to attach trim along each edge of the fabric on the lampshade.
