Decide whether you will use and decorate existing shades or whether you will make new ones from scratch. If making new ones, work out what size of shade you need by measuring the existing shades or by experimenting with creating paper shades of various standard size shades to see which size would work well. Look for frames in the right size in your local craft shop or purchase online. Decide what you will use to cover your lamp shades. This might be something simple like wallpaper or wrapping paper in an interesting design or a fabric you love. You may also decide to cover your shades in patterned or plain fabric. Remember that plain lamp shades cam always be embellished.
Cover your existing lamp shades or lamp shade frames with your chosen materials. Glue in place using a glue gun folding in the edges to neaten them. Fabric may need to be stiffened by using iron on backing. (Apply this after you cut the fabric otherwise you will have more difficulty cutting the shape. If necessary, paper can also be stiffened by gluing onto thin card. If covering a shade in fabric, in addition to applying glue, stitch the fabric in place with small stitches around the top and bottom of the frame to secure into place.
