Super Funky Lampshade

By: Kim Meyer for Jacquard Products

If you need a replacement lamp shade, ignore the store for your lamp parts and make your own lamp shade. This craft from Jacquard Products shows you how to make a paper or fabric lamp shade that will illuminate your crafting skills.

Materials:

  • Lampshade (fabric or paper)
  • Jacquard Lumiere: Super Copper & Metallic Bronze
  • Paper palette or paper plate
  • 1” foam paintbrush
  • 3/4” self-stick dots from an office supply store

Steps:

  1. Stick the dots onto the lampshade in a random polka-dot pattern.
     
  2. Put some Lumiere Super Copper and Metallic Bronze in small pools onto a paper plate or paper palette.
     
  3. Dab the foam paintbrush into the paint and apply to the lampshade alternating colors. Cover the dots and vary the brushstrokes. Mix the colors together a bit on the lampshade for a two-tone effect.
     
  4. Let the paint dry completely. It is not necessary to heatset or fix the paint for this project.
     
  5. After the paint is dry, remove the dots.

I think this is a very pretty lamp,shade. I am wondering if you could apply canvas type fabric to stiff paper and paint it? Anyone ever try this? This project looks great and would show through nicely when the light is on. Depending on the look you want, it might be helpful to try the technique first on a small scale using the same materials and hold it up,to a light bulb so you can see what it will look like first. Lamp shades always look different unlit and lit and you don't want to be disappointed! Thanks for the super instructions!

100g weight but you could get away with 80g weight or kids craft paper

What kind of paper would you use for lamp shade??
