David A. Land (Styled by Matthew Gleason)
- iron-on interfacing
- wood block stamp
- crafts paint
- heavy-duty double-sided tape
Adhere iron-on interfacing to the back of a large piece of fabric to make it stiffer and prevent fraying.
Cut the fabric to the circumference and width of the shade. Use a pouncer to coat a wood block stamp with crafts paint. Stamp onto the fabric so the design is spaced evenly, following the image shown.
Adhere the fabric to the shade with strips of heavy-duty double-sided tape along the top and bottom of the shade and along the vertical seam of the fabric.
