We love this use of fabric because it allows you to bring trends into your home without spending too much, plus you can change the look each season! Measure and cut your fabric to fit the lamp shade you’d like to cover and attach it with a heat-proof fabric glue. We suggest going for a foliage or dark floral pattern this fall.
