Select your paper: We love to go to Paper Source but there is always great wrapping paper available too.

Then use an existing lampshade or purchase a new one. If the shade is just plain white it is best not to remove since it is heat resistant. you will just cover over it.

Trace the shade onto the paper. Cut. Adhere to shade. We use spray adhesive. Others use tacky glue brushed on with light touch.
