Making a Custom Lamp Shade : Gluing Fabric to a Custom Lamp Shade


Hello my name is Denise Roberson and on behalf
of Expert Village, I’m here to show you how to customize a lamp shade. Now we are going
to get ready to glue the fabric onto the lamp shade. You are going to take the edge of your
fabric and line it up with the seam of the existing lamp shade cover. So take my hot
glue and just do a seam down the edge of the lamp shade so that can hold it in place so
when we get ready to start. Have enough on there so it would have a nice bond. Now we
are just going to place it onto the edge there and smoothing it out so it would have a nice
stick to it. It is all right if it is a little off cause we are going to cover it with some
flowers around the edges. So just smooth it out and that is the start of our gluing process.
This is a little off so I’m just going to take it and kind of reposition it. Now I’m
just going to take some more glue around the top part and just a little at time start to
glue it. Smooth as you go.
