Creating your own rolled edge lampshade is actually not as difficult as one might imagine as well as only takes around 1 hour. This specific is actually the second lampshade I have made for my home as well as I love of which I can choose a fabric which compliments my home decor as well as neutral coloring schemes. I’ll show you how to make your own in This specific step by step tutorial below!
You will need:
- 30cm lampshade rings (for top as well as bottom)
- Self adhesive panel measuring 95 x 25cm
- Strong double sided sticky tape (suitable for fabric)
- Cotton fabric measuring 100 x 40cm
- Craft Knife
- Tucking Tool
(You may wish to purchase a lampshade creating kit, which usually has all of these items included).
Place the fabric right side down with enough room to flatten the entire length. Smooth out any creases. Prepare your self adhesive panel by using the craft knife as well as ruler to score a 1cm border on each long edge.
Position the self adhesive panel on top of the wrong side of the fabric as well as mark the corners having a pencil. Here you should take note of the design of the fabric, especially if there is actually a pattern to match up.
When you are happy with the position, peel back around 10cm of the backing to expose the adhesive panel as well as stick down in line with your pencil marks. Smooth to reduce air bubbles. Slowly begin to pull out the remaining back paper as well as smooth the self adhesive panel onto the fabric.
Then cut the fabric around the panel. inside the end, I trimmed This specific to around 0.5cms.
Snap back the scored edges along the long side of the self adhesive panel as well as remove the strips.
Take both rings as well as cover them completely inside the double sided sticky tape.
Add a strip of sticky tape on one of the short edges of the fabric, to stick the join when you are finished.
Remove the backing by the double sided sticky tape on both of the rings.
Place your rings next to the long edge of the backing as shown. Here you need the right now sticky rings to adhere to the fabric.
Carefully roll the rings along the fabric to form the lampshade shape. Make sure the rings are sticking evenly to the fabric as you go. Here of which might help to have an extra pair of hands!
Once your lampshade is actually formed, remove use the double sided sticky tape on the short edge of the fabric to secure.
right now roll the fabric over the edge of the sticky rings as well as use the tucking tool to hide the raw edge. Trim any frayed areas of fabric.
right now your lampshade is actually ready to hang!
