Looking for a fun DIY lampshade? It doesn’t get more joyful and cute than this Cherry lampshade. With its red and green popping colors, this fun and super easy DIY Cherry Lampshade will surely make a fun statement to any kids space. Let’s get started!
Here is what you will need:
• Hot glue gun
Start by making the shape of the green leaf on your fabric felt, approx. 2 inch long. We cut approximately 20 but it will depend on the size of your lampshade and how apart you will want your Cherry pattern.
Now, you’re ready to stitch! Place your embroidery thread to the needle and start doing the running stitch (over, under creating a line). To finish off make sure all your knots are tight at the back so your stitches don’t fall out.
Now let’s grab your wire and cut around 7” for each cherry pair. Follow the steps for the wire shaping on reference image. You can play a little bit with the wire shape if you want a more natural look.
It’s time to grab your felt balls and place it at the ends of the wire that you just shaped, by placing dots of glue using a hot glue gun while pressing it together. Once they dry start hot gluing the green leafs, create some with two leafs and others with one leaf.
Have all your pieces ready then, start hot gluing them into your shade. Start making a zig zag pattern to make it look balanced. Tip: use a lot of hot glue!
Once it is finished, place it over your favorite nightstand or dresser and enjoy it for many reading nights!
