Embellished Lampshade

Altered Lampshade

This is a really simple and easy way to change the look of your lampshades. You could even try a new look every season!

I started by die cutting a whole bunch of hexagons using the Fuse Creativity System® and the Hexagon Medium Design Set.

I chose a variety of textures: fabric, plain vellum, printed vellum and shimmery vellum. The ease of using the Fuse makes cutting all these different textures a breeze.

I then arranged these hexagons in a random pattern and adhered them to each other using thin strips of cork that I cut using the Amplify® Mixed Media Shears and the SureCut Deluxe Paper Trimmer.

Finally, I simply adhered the hexagon arrangement onto my lampshade.
