DIY lampshade cover

My sister was over her monotone lampshade so she decided to give it a little more flair. I thought it was a good idea that could be shared. It's an easy less than 5 min procedure that will give your room a romantic feel. Find out how she did it

Material needed:
- Lampshade
- A sheer scarf or any other light fabric
- A paper clip

Wrap your fabric evenly around the lampshade starting from top.

Enroulez le tissu de manière égale autour de l’abajour en commençant par le haut.

Then secure your fabric with the paper clip.

Fixez votre tissu avec le trombone.

Finish wrapping your fabric and make sure to cover everything. A loose wrapping will do.

Continuez d’enrouler sans trop serrer et de façon à couvrir tout l’abajour.

Make a bow and voilà!

Faites une boucle et.. voilà!

      I’m pretty sure you can do it on all types of lamps as long as you pick a fabric that will cover the lampshade in its entirety. Good luck! :)
