How To Decorate Your Old Drum Shade

Mar 18, 2021 01:43 AM

Sometimes I want different furniture to look another way and in this case I start finding the ways to decorate and improve them a little bit. There`re some easy techniques to do it and one of them is decoupage. Today we wll make the new colourful and beautiful drum shade from your old one. I promise you the result will be fantastic.

Let`s get started!

Things you need:

  • Scissors
  • Foam brush
  • Small bowl
  • Large pendant drum shade
  • Pendant light kit
  • 1 to 1-1/2 yards fabric
  • Decoupage medium
  • Bias tape
  • Fabric glue

Step 1.

Prepare The Drum. Use scissors to cut designs from fabric, and lay them out on the drum to determine placement. It's best to find fabric with a background the same color as your shade so water color designs like this blend in nicely.

Step 2.

Adhere Fabric. Once you have your placement set, dip foam brush into bowl with decoupage medium and apply to back of fabric. Flip fabric on the drum shade, and then lightly coat with another layer of decoupage medium. Use a flat decoupage medium. Repeat until drum shade is covered with desired amount of fabric. Let dry.

Step 3.

Add Bias Tape. Use fabric glue to adhere bias tape to top and bottom of drum shade. First dab glue onto tape, then use your finger to spread glue across fabric. Press and hold firmly on drum shade, folding over the edges. Move slowly as you work around the drum, taking time to press the bias tape to the edges.

Step 4.

Hang Shade. Once the glue has dried, you're ready to hang the drum shade. Thread the pendant light kit through the middle of the shade, according to package instructions. Screw in a lightbulb, and admire your hard work!
