Make an artsy lamp shade for your kids room

 

What you'll need for your artsy lamp shade

 
  • Paper and crayons or one of your kids existing crayon masterpieces
 
  • Bedside lamp base
 
  • White or light-coloured lamp shade
 
  • Strong white glue
 
  • Water for mixing with the glue
 
  • Paintbrush
 
  • Craft wire (optional)
 
  • Small toy (optional)
 

How to make your artsy lamp shade


1. Get your kids to draw a crayon masterpiece or use one they’ve created already.

2. Cut out the shapes and glue them to the outside of the lampshade.

3. With a solution of 3 parts glue to 1 part water, paint over each of the cut-outs on the lampshade, coating all the edges.

4. Allow the glue to dry and apply another 2 or 3 coats, allowing each application to dry before applying the next.

5. Once the lamp shade has dried completely, fit it to the lamp base and your bedroom decoration is complete!
 

Tips


If you have a lamp with a pull on/off switch, you might want to add a small toy to the end of the cord with some craft wire for extra decoration and fun.
