Making a DIY lampshade means you can create a completely customized look - from the size & dimensions of the shade to the fabric you use to cover it. But your options don't end there. There are great non-fabric options for covering your lampshade and ways you can play around with the adhesive styrene in your DIY Lampshade Making Supplies - like cutting patterns out of the styrene for a self-patterned look. When the lamp is turned on, the light shines through the cut-outs, making your chosen pattern or text come to life. The look can be subtle or bold, depending on the pattern you create. This classic drum lampshade gets an easy lift with triangle cut-outs at the base of the shade.
