lamps shades, home decorThere are a few things that you have to consider when you are trying to make your own lampshade. First of all, you will have to get a pattern for the fabric or the paper. This paper or the fabric will be covering the lampshade. It is important that a big work surface is created for this job. The top, the bottom and the sides of the shade has to be marked with chalk or pencil.

Then, you will have to get the lampshade rolled across the paper or the fabric until it has rotated fully. The end of your shade has to be marked with chalk or pencil. The pattern has to be cut with the use of scissors. You should also lave an inch extra on all sides so that the paper or the fabric can be secured. These are some of the things that you have to do in order to create your own lampshade.
