How to Make a Drum Lampshade
(Updated 15th July 2020)
Looking for a subtle way to refresh and add colour or pattern into your interior? Lampshades are the perfect way to do so, simple to make too, it’s a great way of adding a handmade touch to your home.
What fabric should I choose for my drum lampshade?
Not all fabrics are suitable for lampshade making. Woven fabrics such as cottons and linens are best; these will trim neater and will be easier to manipulate. If you are using a patterned fabric, you will need to consider which part of the pattern you would like to be seen clearly on your lampshade; a smaller pattern for example may work better.
