Blue Lamp Shade

No wonder that blue is the favorite color in southern countries: It's cool, yet, it radiates a comfort ambience. Find out how to make your own lamp shade – A table lamp shade covered with batik fabric.

  • White lamp shade
  • cable with socket
  • fabric with blue batik pattern (quantity depends on the size of the lamp shade: width circumference + 2 cm, height + 10 cm)
  • scissors
  • tape measure
  • pencil
  • ruler
  • tesa® Double-sided adhesive tape

This is how to do it:


Collect all items and let's start!

Step 1


Cut the fabric: Circumference of the lamp shade + 2 cm, height + 7 cm.

Fray the edges at top and bottom (3.5 cm on each side) by pulling the long threads out of the fabric.

Step 2


Apply double-sided adhesive tape around the top and bottom borders of the lampshade; at the seam, apply a vertical strip of tape.

Step 3


Apply a strip of adhesive tape to the back of a short side of the fabric.

Step 4


Peel off the protective film from the adhesive tape on the upper border and from the vertical strip of the lampshade.

Step 5


Place the non-stick short side of the fabric on the vertical adhesive strip, and press firmly. Now glue the fabric all around the upper border.

Step 6


Peel off the protective film and wrap the fabric tightly around the lamp shade.

Step 7


Peel off the protection film on the overlapping piece of fabric and glue it on crease-free.

Step 8


To cover the cable with the remaining fabric, cut off a long, 2-cm wide strip. Cover the cable with double-sided adhesive tape.

Step 9


Peel off the protective film and wrap the fabric tightly around the cable.
