The most common type of fabric to use for a DIY lampshade is cotton. We just love using light-medium weight cottons because they're by far the easiest fabrics to work with when creating a DIY lampshade. But if you're like us, you may want to go that extra step in order to create a truly unique piece of decor for your home.
If you're following us on Pinterest, you may have noticed that we have a thing for unique lampshade materials. In today's round-up, we've put together ten of our favourite cotton-alternative lampshade materials to inspire your next home decor project.
