About this project

These are super easy to make.

I have seen these in pricy catalogs and neat magazines and decided to try to make a couple of them for myself. I made a template for the shade by making an outline of the shade on two pieces of black paper taped together. I used a picture from an old book and blew it up to the right size for my lampshade then outlined it on top of an inch and a half to two inched of a border on the bottom edge. Then I cut it out using scissors and a craft knife. Then I taped it to the inside of the shade. I did this for two shades, and I had instant shadow shades!
