Lampshade Making with HOW + A Giveaway!

I’ve had this antique marble lamp base for ages that I’ve been looking for a lampshade for so when HOW – Hands On Workshop asked I’ve I’d be interested in test driving their DIY Beginner’s Lampshade Making Kit, I was like, heck yeah–I’m in! Lampshade Making with Hands on Workshop + Giveaway | Francois et Moi HOW – Hands On Workshop creates Beginner DIY Kits for budding makers that you can make in your pajamas if you like! The customizable kit ships right to your doorstep and includes all the materials needed to create the craft + step by step, detailed instructions. They also have great video tutorial resources too. Does it get any easier than that?!

Lampshade Making with HOW | Francois et Moi You guys know I’m a fabric nut, so I was excited that Hands on Workshop uses authentic Japanese Tenugui fabric for their lampshades and that each DIY kit has fabric/color options to personalize your project just to you.

Lampshade Making with HOW | Francois et Moi I’ve wrapped pre-made lampshades with fabric before, but I’ve never made the actual lampshade itself, because I have to say I was a bit intimidated by it. I didn’t think I could make one professional looking enough to want to use in my house. Not to mention, where do you find the supplies? Hands on Workshop totally blew that misconception out of the water for me.

The detailed instructions make creating the lampshade SUPER easy, and the end result is a well constructed, modern lampshade. The perfect compliment to my antique marble lamp!
