A BURLAP SHADE TUTORIAL
What you will need:
fabric( I used burlap)
Now lets get started....
First I took apart this shade. Piece by piece.
Draw around the fabric with a sharpie.
Make sure you also measure the circumference of your shade. I added a few inches to the width just to
make sure I had enough fabric.

Next I used the piping that goes around the top and bottom of the shade.
Used this as my guide to make the piping.
I keep my spray bottle filled with water to spray on the burlap. Holds it much better.

That's ok. Just cut out another piece of fabric mine was 2" by the length from top to bottom and add on an inch.
Fold over your edges and give it a good press. Then you are ready to glue this over the gap. Now it looks
Now we add the piping to the top and bottom using the same technique gluing to the shade and using our
clips to secure.
