How to make a fringed lampshade
Here's how to make a fringed lampshade with velvet and a tassel trim
Make sure your lighting is the best-dressed, with glamorous velvet and tassel trim.
You will need:
- Drum lampshade
- Velvet fabric
- Fringe trimming
- Tape measure
- Glue gun
Measure and cut a length of velvet fabric to cover the surface of the shade, with a 1.5cm allowance on each side. Fold 0.5cm in on each side and press with an iron.
Lay the fabric face-down on your work surface and place the shade on top. Using a glue gun, apply glue to the top edge of the inside of the shade and start sticking the fabric in place.
Continue working around the shade, then repeat around the bottom of the shade, making sure the fabric is taut and wrinkle-free.
Measure and cut a length of fringe trim. Carefully glue around the inside edge of the bottom of the shade, to finish.
