Make A Lamp Shade Out Of A Scarf



Materials Needed:

1 oblong scarf - 2 inches wider and 1 1/2 times the circumference of any lamp shade
Elastic
Ribbon

1. On wrong side of scarf, pin a stripe of ribbon so that it runs the full length and even with the top and the same thing on the bottom
Sew the ribbon for a casing for the elastic

2. Cut 2 lengths of elastic making them 2 inches longer that the ribbon casing

3. Place the scarf over the lamp shade and pull the elastic at the top and bottom until gathers for around the shade

4. When the fabric is snug around the lamp shade sew the elastic ends to secure

* This Shade Is Intended Primarily For Decorative Purposes

Thank you for posting this, when I moved last I had to leave a fabulous lamp shade made of really cool psychedelic vintage fabric.
