One of the best ways for you to add your personality to your home and make it feel unique is to re-cover a lampshade. 

You can go subtle or really bold… you can repeat a fabric you already have in the room or make a statement with something completely different. 

Whatever you choose, it will make your home feel extra special, because the chances are that no one else will have the same lampshade as you! 

And the best thing is that re-covering a lampshade is much easier than it looks! 

So in this video, I’m showing you how you can make yours: 

What you’ll need:

  • Lampshade
  • Fabric
  • Parchment paper
  • Pen
  • Scissors
  • Spray adhesive
  • Hot glue gun + glue sticks

How to: 

Step 1: Make a template

Step 2: Try it out

Step 3: Secure it in place

Step 4: Cut it bigger than the template

Step 5: Remove wrinkles from the fabric

Step 6: Spray the adhesive

Step 7: Cover the lampshade with the fabric

Step 8: Cut the excess fabric

Step 9: Fold the edge of the fabric and glue it before doing the same with the top and bottom of the lampshade

Step 10: Fold again and glue it to the lampshade

And pronto!

I hope this video gives the inspo you need to make a one-of-a-kind lampshade, just as unique as YOU are!

To a colourful life,
