Fabric Shade How-To

Measure and cut fabric to fit the shade (make sure to iron fabric first to eliminate creases), leaving 2 extra inches on each side.

Starting at the bottom of the shade and working up in 6-inch increments, apply adhesive with a paintbrush and firmly press fabric to the shade. Smooth out any wrinkles with your hands, then let the glue dry for about 30 minutes. (To prevent puckering, we placed a few heavy books on the fabric while it was drying.)

Flip the shade over and trim excess fabric from the sides with scissors.
