We have made 4 FREE tutorials with written instructions and FREE videos showing you how to make Drum, Oval, Coolie (Cone) and Square shaped lampshades from a kit.
The kits are all made using the same principle method. The base line video for all the tutorials demonstrates making a drum lampshade and extra info is added where necessary for a square, oval or coolie shade.
Avoid 4 common errors when making.
1. frayed edges inside the shade tucked around the shade ring.
2. Slightly frayed, untidy seam
3. Not have quite enough fabric to tuck under the ring at the join.
4. The ring bulging from the liner.
On YOUTUBE as well
There are quite a few quick videos showing you how to make the kits on youtube, but they don't give much detail or show you the little extra tips in our tutorials to make a really well made shade.
