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.
If you have used a patterned fabric or paper you will probably not need much in the way of decoration although you might like to add a braid trim around the edges in a coordinating color. If you have made a plain shade however you can really go to town adding beads, sequins, fringing and the like. Your glue gun will come in handy once again for attaching anything you desire to your shade. Use your imagination and create something very special and unique but remember that you will have to replicate the process for each individual shade so make sure you don’t run out of trimmings.
