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.
Tiffany lamps generally mean stained glass lamps. The reason they’re called Tiffany lamps is because back in the late 1800’s, early 1900’s a guy by the name of Louis Comfort Tiffany propelled stained glass lamps to a whole new level. He used an innovative technique to produce exquisite decorative stained glass lamps that were works of art. Back in the day, Tiffany lamps were all the rage. And anyone who was wealthy enough to own one had one. Even the white house housed a good few lamps of Tiffany’s.
