This is a way to create an easy and fun, magic lampshade customized by you!

Total Time: approximately 10 minutes


  • white lampshade
  • black Sharpie pen


  1. Take a white lampshade and draw anything you want inside with a black Sharpie pen. You can look on the internet or books for ideas. Shadow puppet images are helpful.
  2. I chose Mary Poppins. I drew it free hand in case sketching would be visible. As a result I don't know if sketches will show.
  3. This is how the lampshade looks after the drawing. You can barely see it right?
  4. Turn the light on and, voila, surprise! There you are - Mary Poppins.
    Entertain your friends and family, or just sit back and enjoy your creation. :)
