Materials Needed:

  • tape measure
  • fabric-covered drum shade
  • scissors
  • ribbon in 3 varying widths
  • fabric glue
  • pencil

Step 1

Measure the shade at its widest point, then cut 6 strips of ribbon in that length (2 strips of each width).

Step 2

Dot glue on the end of the widest ribbon; wrap it around the shade's bottom edge, adding glue dots to the ribbon's underside as you go.

Step 3

Repeat step 2 around the top of the shade.

Step 4

Measure 1" from each ribbon. Make pencil marks around the shade to keep spacing consistent.

Step 5

Glue the next-widest ribbon strips along the pencil marks.

Step 6

Repeat steps 4 and 5 for the thinnest ribbon strips.
