How to Make Custom Lamp Shades
Modernize your home decor by adding fun and stylish looks to ordinary table lamps. Try these inexpensive tips to breathe new life into a light feature. For this project, you will need platinum spray paint, black craft paint, and ordinary sponge paint brush, a stencil template, tape, black fabric ribbon, a glue gun, and finally gem stickers and a drop cloth.
For this project were going to slick just an ordinary table lamp. This lamp has a dull brown stand, so were going to fix it up by spraying platinum spray paint. Start from the bottom and work your way up. To avoid the spray paint dripping make sure your can is at least one foot away and using easy strokes. This wrist tape dispensers come in handy for projects. Now with the lamp shade, just simply tape on a stencil, really consider where exactly you want your stencil because once you used the paint it’s impossible to remove.
In a small container add your craft paint and gently dab your sponge brush. Now dab your stencil gently the sponge brush will absorb in an ample amount of paint so you don’t need much. This is a water-based acrylic craft paint, so allow at least 30 minutes before removing the stencil. After drying remove the stencil, and there you have it. A plot is same method at the back of the lamp shade.
Use a smaller stencil cut out on both sides of the lamp shade. This will add uniformity and texture. With a hot glue gun add a dell of glue to the top rim of the shade, and start adding the fabric ribbon. You can also use fabric tape and place with the hot glue gun. Supply a ten coat of glue. Don’t over do it, you don’t need much. And just snip up the end with the pair of scissors.
I found this upgraded ribbon with tousles on the end for sale for two dollars a yard; this will add charm in the finishing touches to your lampshade. Finally, add the gems stickers to through out the lamp shade, place them in strategic areas for uniformity. Put on the lamp shade and that’s it. Get ordinary lamp shades a lift with easy add-on’s that take less than a half an hour. We had easy solutions here at the homestagingchannel.com.
