Re-cover chandelier shades with scrapbook paper.

Remember the upcycled lampshades I did with some cute fabric in the springtime?  It’s fall so I was ready for a change… but this time I didn’t use fabric, I used houndstooth scrapbook paper.

I had paper left over from my DIY gift bags, and I thought it would be perfect for these chandy shades.

Rather than repost the instructions here, I will just refer you back to the fabric lampshades.  It is the same exact process.

I peeled off the old fabric and used the fabric as a pattern to cut out the scrapbook paper.  The only difference is that I used double-sided tape to adhere the paper to the lampshade form instead of hot glue, like I did for the fabric.
I also took the blue strips of trim outside and spray painted them black.

I love that I can just change these things up whenever I want.

Fast and easy!
