About this project
I am on a mission to cover up at least one third of our 1,295 recessed lights around the house! One of those lights I covered with this easy, high-impact drum shade made from wood shims and a floral wreath form.
You Will Need
To start, you'll want determine how long you want your shade to be. I thought 11" was pretty substantial so I cut about 50 wood shims down to 11". Be sure to saw off the paper thin ends of the shims as they are too delicate for this project.
Next, prep your work surface with old cardboard or craft paper. Fire up the glue gun!
Lay one wreath form on your work surface and place a nice blob of hot glue on one end of a shim.
Attach the shim to the outside of the wreath form making sure it's level. Now grab your other wreath form. Add a line of hot glue to the other end of your placed wood shim and attach it to the other wreath form. The first couple of wood shims are the trickiest. Doing these first shims with a partner is a great idea.
