What you'll need:

  • iron-on interfacing
  • fabric
  • scissors
  • pouncer
  • wood block stamp
  • crafts paint
  • heavy-duty double-sided tape

Step 1

Adhere iron-on interfacing to the back of a large piece of fabric to make it stiffer and prevent fraying.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.
