The materials used in the decoration of the shades are so diverse that you will surely find your ideal project in our article.

Screens decorated with flowers
First and most romantic idea: lampshades decorated with flowers. How? Well, with fabric flowers, synthetic flowers or paper flowers. Any type will serve to add a sweet chic touch to your lamp. Do you want to see examples? Get inspired by these pictures.
For me, synthetic flowers are ideal for this decorative project due to their durability. They will stay perfect for a long time, there are even models that can be washed.
There are also so many models, colors and sizes that you can give any decorative style to your lampshades. And they are a simple product to buy in a local store.
And the second material to make flowers is paper. For its so cheap price. If you are the one who likes to change the decoration of your home constantly, do not hesitate to decorate your screens with paper flowers.
Decoupage on lampshades
Do you know the decoupage technique? If not, don’t panic, because it is not a secret. It consists of cutting images from canvas or paper and capturing it on any surface. The lampshades are perfect for this craft. We show you screens decorated with decoupage so you can see what you can achieve with this technique.
The possibilities are endless, as many as there are paper and fabric designs, but you can also invent your own pattern.
Newsprint, comics, old letters or magazines, postcards, photos are some original ideas for your decoupage project.
Decorated with buttons
I don’t know why buttons fascinate me so much. Since I was little I spent hours playing with my mother’s button box which was amazing and full of treasures. Since then, any craft that has buttons freaks me out. That is why I cannot stop recommending the lamps decorated with buttons.
A lampshade decorated by hand is a work of art combined with the colors of the room. Would you dare with such a project?
