DIY Lamp Shade Cover

October 27th, 2010

Last but not least, I am back with the deets on how to make your own lamp shade cover.

I had done it before in the past, but decided I could use a refresher on the details in case I might have forgotten something.

Again I just googled “DIY lamp shade cover” and found this great tutorial.

Here’s the play by play in photos…

The plain-jane shade before…

First we traced a template…

Then we cut out the template…

Next we pinned the template onto the fabric…

And then we made our final cut!

What I didn’t take photos of was spraying the fabric with the spray adhesive and then attaching it to the shade.  It took both set of hands {me and my mums} to make sure we pulled it taught with no wrinkles!  So no hands left to snap the photos- sorry!

And here’s the finished look!

It was very easy and actually took only about 20 mins to complete!  And doesn’t the lamp look so much cuter with the polka dots vs. the basic white shade?
