Create Your Own Wildflowers Lampshade


Rossella Cottrell shows you just how easy it is to light up a room in style thanks to brand new Threaders fabric stamps designed exclusively by Sheena Douglass!

You will need

Threaders Woodland Wildflowers fabric stamps
A ready-made plain lampshade or lampshade making kit
Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens
A strip of calico (to fit your lampshade)
Rock-a-Blocks (optional)

Step one

Cut the individual stamps from the A5 sheet and mount those you wish to use on to Rock-a-Blocks. If you are using a ready-made lampshade, you may find it easier to stamp the images using the stamps unmounted.

Step two

If you’re stamping onto a strip of calico rather than directly onto a ready-made lampshade, ensure that it’s ironed well prior to stamping as you don’t want to use a steam iron over stamped areas. Apply Sparkle pens of your choice onto the Woodland Wildflowers stamps. Lightly spray the coloured stamps with water to create a soft watercolour effect when stamping.

Step three

Stamp the images either directly onto the ready-made lampshade if you’re using one, or across the length of the calico strip. Continue stamping until you are happy with your design.

Step four

If you have stamped directly onto a ready-made lampshade your project is now complete! If you’ve stamped onto a strip of calico, then affix the calico around the lampshade or if you’ve used a kit, then assemble the lampshade as per the kit instructions. You now have a stunning lamp that adds a touch of wildflower prettiness to the home.
