This is a great way to accent those mini lamp shades or even large ones.
Approximate Time 30 minutes
To add some flair to a ordinary lampshade, take a pin and poke holes along outline of picture. This one was from the $1.00 store and had a print on it. If you can not find one you like, use decoupage to add a photo and poke holes around design. THis one looks better in person than in the photo and you can make these for anyone. I put 30 minutes to do, but it depends on size of lampshade and amount of holes needed. This is kind of like the punch tin effect, but with the paper shades.

Nice job ! Great tip, Thanks
Much more interesting than it originally was!
This clever craft addition makes me smile. It reminds me of those punched tin antiues. God bless you. :}
You did a great job on the lamps. I have a pair of bedroom lamps that could use some embellishment. Since they are a good distance apart on a large dresser, I wonder if they would have to be exactly alike?
