Materials

  • Self-Adhesive & Ready-to-Cover Lampshade (Hollywood Lights)
  • White cardstock
  • Trims: yellow satin cording; green mini pompom

Tools

  • Sunkissed stamp (Penny Black)

  • Green decorator chalk and applicator

Directions

STEP 1

  • Remove protective sheet from lampshade; sheet serves as pattern for covering shade. Place shade in secure location once adhesive is exposed.

STEP 2

  • Lightly trace shade pattern onto white cardstock. When finished tracing, replace protective sheet on shade to preserve adhesive until ready to cover.

STEP 3

  • Stamp and emboss daisies randomly over traced shade pattern, repeating until entire shade is covered. Color daisies with yellow marker; apply green chalk to background among flowers.

STEP 4

  • Cut out pattern piece. Remove protective sheet from lampshade. Follow manufacturer’s instructions to cover shade, overlapping ends slightly in back.

STEP 5

  • Glue satin trim around top of shade; trim excess. Glue pompom trim around bottom edge; trim excess.

Tip

  • 1. Stamp and color coordinating canvas pillows for your sun porch; heat set inks and spray with a protective moisture-resistant coating. Wipe pillows clean now and then with a damp cloth.
  • 2. Imagine black stamped daisies on white cardstock, with a bright pink chalked background. So girly! Don’t forget the pink pompom trim.
  • 3. Create themed lampshades for baby’s room, favorite sports, holidays, seasons and more. Rotate shades out for cost conscious redecorating.
