Lamshade Upgrade

I love a lampshade kit; such instant fun and satisfaction.

I had a tiny bit of fabric left over from my curtains and the cream shade that was on here had seen better, less dusty days. It had tipped over to revolting.

The fabric is a linen silk embroidered fabric and it is truly beautiful.

I used the 20cm Drum kit from Needcraft as I have with all the lampshades I have made. They are not expensive, everything you need is in the box.

Easy to make in an hour and it gives an instant professional finish. 

What crafty action are you up to?

  1. A lovely project and the lamp has a new lease of life. Well done

  2. A great make as always Jo! If it is anything like the clock kits I can imagine they come together really well and very easily.

    1. Oh yes, did yo make that one from the giveaway? I wish I had seen it. Jo x

  3. That is very pretty. I did something similar many years ago. It's great when they match the curtains.

  4. Wow! What a fun project! It looks great! I never heard of lampshade kits or that company. I'll have to check it out.
