DIY Shabby Chic Rosette Lampshade

How to make a lampshade

Do you all remember [THIS] beautiful little shabby chic rosette lamp shade from my daughter's nursery?
Well, for the past year I have been dying to make one for our living room & finally got around to doing it! After going back to look at my last DIY tutorial on this lamp shade (that was tremendously popular), I realized that a few little details were missing... so here is a NEW full tutorial with step by step instructions

DIY lampshade

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
- 3 to 5 yards of: GAUZE FABRIC BY THE YARD
(depending on the size of your shade)
LARGE LAMPSHADE
(make sure to click on the LARGE drum shade option when ordering)
LAMP BASE
- Hot Glue Sticks & Glue Gun
- Scissors


STEP #1:
Roll out your fabric measuring 3.5 to 4 yards in length (for a large size shade)


 STEP #2:
Make small cuts in your fabric (lengthwise) approx. 1 inch apart


STEP #3 & #4:
Seperate and start to tear your fabric by holding the larger portion of the fabric with your left hand and ripping the strip with your right hand. When you cut fabric lengthwise, it naturally tears into a straight line since it is going with the seams/ thread.


STEP #5:
Tear all of the fabric into strips until you end up with a large pile like this


STEP #6:
Take an individual strip of fabric and ball up one end of the fabric by pinching the fabric in between your thumb and index finger, then wrap the strip of fabric around it. You will start to get a small rosette look as you keep pinching the fabric and twisting it around itself (like a cinnamon bun). Once you have the start to your rosette, make a small dab of hot glue and place the fabric over it.


STEP #7:

 After you have twisted the beginning of your strip of fabric, place it on a table, with your hands on either end of the strip. With your left finger, hold the end of the left side of the strip down. With your right hand, wrap the remainder of the strip of fabric around the center starting point (while keeping it twisted). This should create a cinnamon bun effect. To hold the flower securely together, place dots of glue using a hot glue gun every so often while assembling it together. 

TIP: To create various sizes of roses, take your torn strips and cut them to different lengths.



STEP #8:
Keep twisting the fabric, you will use the whole length of the fabric strip.
Your rosette will end up looking like this. Once you come to the end of the fabric, glue the excess amount onto the back of the rose, holding it all together & giving it a more finished look

How to make a flower out of fabric

STEP #9:
Make A LOT of rosettes! You will end up needing approx 50 to cover a medium size shade, and over 70 to cover a large size shade.
Then, start hot gluing them into your shade. Tip: use a lot of hot glue!

DIY Anthropologie lampshade

I am not going to lie, this project is VERY TIME CONSUMING!
One lampshade of this size takes approx. 5 straight hours to finish & if you happen to have little ones running all over the house... well, I would prepare yourself to spend a few days on this project!

But once it is finished, it is SO worth all of the work that went into it!
Happy crafting!

  2. I saw the original post the day before you took it down. I freaked out for a little bit, because even though I remembered the basic steps, I couldn't remember all of it. You have no idea how happy I am to see this with even more in-depth directions! I have some fabric on its way over here, so I can make one for my soon-to-be daughter's nursery! Love it so much—thank you!!!
