A couple of days ago I decided I wanted to find a use for some leftover fabric I had that I just adored. I decided to try to cover some lampshades with it. I have heard of people doing this before with spray adhesives, glue guns and the like. I, on the other hand, wanted to cover the lampshades, but also wanted to be able to remove/ change them later if I tired of them (which knowing me, I probably will ) . I decided to go about it using things I already had around the house. Double sided tape seemed to fit the bill. It will be easily removable when I get the urge. It was also super quick....I am very pleased with the finished result!! Here's how I went about it:
|I started with a simple drum style lampshade......|
I ran another strip of double sided tape around the top of the shade and then peeled the backing off it.
|Lastly, I added a stickpin on the top and the bottom where the ribbon meets, to make sure everything stays put...|
That's it...could it be any easier? Voila......you have a super easy "custom" lampshade...enjoy!!
