How to Cover a Lampshade - KEY NOTE: buy the "conso lifestyles" lampsade at JoAnn's Craft & Fabric Store - the plastic liner removes to become the pattern for the fabric... and the shade is super sticky for the fabric to stick to. Super simple to do!
This is a simple lamp shade that has been decorated with buttons. I can do something similar to this. You can decorate with buttons in lots of ways, for example covering everything with buttons (top photo) or dangling them from the bottom.
