Decorate self-adhesive lampshades with a color copy of actual blossoms.
- Cut a variety of blossoms or foilage and lay face down on a color copier and copy onto an 11x17 piece of paper.
- Purchase a small self-adhesive lampshade, remove the pattern and trace onto the color copy. Cut out and adhere to the lampshade.
- Finish the edge with beaded trim, fringe, etc.
You can also make coordinating place mats by simply laminating the 11x17 color copy.
