Puppy Love Lampshade Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

This Mommy & Me project was a load of fun to make! Our designer worked with her son and he was so into it, he wanted to keep going and make more!

Step one: Choose one of your child's pictures and use carbon paper to trace the image directly onto the lampshade.

Step two: Use Gem Tac glue to outline the image then add fibers of your choice. Wind fiber in a spiral to make the spots on your dog if you like. Simply glue on a couple seed beads to make eyes.

Step three: Help your child string a small line of seed beads to make the collar on the dog. Glue that on with Gem Tac, and add the charm for the dog tag.

Step four: Cut eight lengths of chain with five links each. Help your child open eight small jump rings to add a pewter charm to one end of each chain. Put a large jump ring on the opposite end of the chain. To attach your charms to the lampshade, use a small hole punch to create a hole in the lampshade and run the jump ring through this hole.

Step five: Have your child use a dog themed rubber stamp on a piece of fabric. Help them cut out the shapes and cover the back of the fabric with Gem Tac glue. Place on the lampshade wherever you like.

Step six: Help your child string a mixture of seed beads to fit around the top. We tied a needle on each end of the thread and had a great time doing this together, working from both ends. When it is long enough to fit around the top of the shade, knot the end. Put a bead of Gem Tac glue around the top of the shade and slide the loop of beads right onto it.

Tip: When using Gem Tac on the lamp shade we let it sit a few minutes to get a little tacky before adding the beads.
Estimated time: Less than two hours
