  • ribbon or Hug Snug (1/2" to 5/8" wide)
This easy method of putting together a fancy little lampshade makes a great lap project. And, it’s a perfect way to use up scraps, remnants, and vintage trims.

Measure off approximately 3 yards of Hug Snug or ribbon. Starting at any rib wire, place a drop of glue on the Hug Snug and press it against the bottom wire until it catches. (This starting place is considered the back of the lampshade.) Wrap the Hug Snug around the frame from bottom to top, outside to inside. Keep the Hug Snug tight and every couple of wraps or so, place a drop of glue on the wire to keep the Hug Snug from slipping. The Hug Snug will tend to overlap more at the top of the frame than the bottom.

Wrap the Hug Snug around each rib wire twice.

To add another length of Hug Snug splice the two ends together with some Quik Glue at a top or bottom wire (these splices will be covered when the decorative trim is added). When the back of the shade is reached, finish off with a drop of Quik Glue. Trim and decorate to taste and style.
