  • Here's how:

     1. & 2. Carefully roll the lampshade on the butcher paper (while tracing the edges with a pencil) to create the pattern and cut out
    3.  Pin and cut on folded fabric
    4. & 5. Spray the lampshade with E-6000 Spray Adhesive and press the fabric to the shade
    6.  Hot glue the edge of the fabric down 
    *use very little hot glue for this
    7.  Match the fabric seams and glue the shades together with E-6000 Glue 
    *don't use hot glue because the heat of the bulbs may cause your glue to melt
    8. . Hot glue the 1/2" bias trim around the side to cover the seams, center and edges of the pendant
    9.  Fold the end of the bias over 1/4" to give a clean finish
