A Fun DIY Gift Idea!

Make a statement with color or go classic with neutrals, either way you get to design a lampshade based on your own personal style and taste

Get crafty this holiday season and give the gift of a beautiful personalized lamp shade! Although wallpaper is designed to be used on the wall, there are actually many other uses for this stylish decorating option. From staircases to bookshelves, coffee tables and head boards, wallpaper can easily be used to refurbish and decorate a variety of furniture and home décor items.

Today we show you how to design a stunning lamp shade to either keep for yourself (we won’t tell!) or give as the perfect gift. Simply follow the steps below, while using the how-to video above as your guide. And if you still have questions, make sure to add them to the comment field and we will answer them as soon as we can!

So simple, you’ll want to refresh all of your lamp shades!
