After watching this you’ll know what to do the next time you see a tired looking or damaged lampshade, to give it a new lease of life.
I know it’s a bit sad but… I was excited to see the hot glue gun that he was using! You might be able to see it in the picture below. It has a fine tipped nozzle and I had no idea that they existed… (thank you Mark for introducing me to them!)

The materials and equipment that you’ll need to revamp your old lampshade are shown below.
- Wire base lampshade
- 1 yard of fabric
- 2-3 yards of ribbon
- 2 yards of trim
- Hot glue gun
