Paper Shade Tutorial
- Tape measure
- Soft pencil
- A lamp that is smooth and in a slightly tapered shape.
- Soft Rubber Rubber 2.5 cm wide
- Paper Clips
- Polyvinylpyrrolidone or hot glue gun
- Paper clips, pins and cutouts
How to make
The first step is to measure the height of the lamp on its sloping side using the measuring tape, add another 2 cm by that time so that it can be finished. You should also measure the circumference of the lower edge of the lamp. The diameter result should be multiplied by 2.5. Once you have the measurements in hand you should cut the wallpaper so that it is possible to cover your lamp.
In this step you should mark the back of the paper using pencils. Draw a parallel line along the edge that is at a distance of 2.5 cm from it. After that, a series of folding lines should be marked with a space of 4 cm between one and the other.
Then turn the paper with the side of the verse up and with your fingers together make a fold by the line of the fold. After that you should turn the paper to the straight side so that the fold lines that are side by side match, then fold again to form accordion pleats that are about 2 cm.
In this step we will assemble the folds that are at the short ends of the strip that has been folded so that it is possible to form a circle. The excess paper should be trimmed, then divide the paper circle into four folded pieces. Trim excess paper also at the edges of the top of the lamp. With the clips make a circle according to the lines that were drawn with the pencil.
Then form a bunch of folded paper that will tighten, fasten again using strips of paper and with the help of a string. The use of paper is important to prevent the cord from ticking. It will be necessary to leave the paper rested like this for several hours so that it is possible that the folds are well folded.
After waiting a long time you should remove the string and the paper. Then mount the short ends of the wallpaper that was folded and paste using the stickers. Wait for it to dry for a few hours.
Adjust the folded paper base over the lamp, align it with the help of the clips and using the pencil lists. Put two elastics on the top and bottom of the lamp. Then adjust the folds so that they can protrude from the lamp about 1.5 cm.
After that you should glue the folded wallpaper over the lamp to its top and bottom edges. Use hot glue to make sure it is secure.

Create a crease about 2 cm in the top and bottom of the fabric. Do not forget to leave a piece to pass the hot glue. To avoid creases, iron over the fabric.
