Easy craft project using fabric from your stash – showing you how to make a DIY fabric lampshade with Terial Magic fabric stabilizer. Great handmade home decor idea – I’ve themed mine for Valentine’s Day, but you can use any fabric / shapes you want – and switch out lamp bases / lampshades to mix and match your room decor.

Lampshade + Fillable Lamp Base (can use new or repurpose old ones)
Foam Mounting Tape
Quilt Basting Spray
Cricut Cutting Machine (I have a super ancient one)
Matte Acrylic Spray
To use Terial Magic, there are three simple steps – spray, let air dry until damp, then iron. Don’t mix used and unused solution!
It’s temporary and washes out – so it’s best to use on machine washable fabrics.
Then cut lots of shapes out in various sizes, I used an older Cricut Expression, but cutting them out with scissors works just as well.
To help the fabric stick to the cutting mat, I sprayed the pieces with quilt basting spray.
Start sticking the shapes to the lampshade one by one using mounting tape – starting with larger shapes and moving to smaller shapes. The foam mounting tape gives some dimension to the layers.
For a bit more permanence, you can spray the lampshade with matte acrylic.
I got a fillable lamp base and made my lampshade DIY Valentine’s Day themed by putting conversation hearts in it. To cut down on how much candy I needed, I put an empty paper towel roll around the middle first.
Great project to help bust through your fabric stash!

Terial Magic is a unique, liquid stabilizer that is revolutionizing the fabric-arts industry. By saturating the fabric threads (unlike spray-on starch), Terial Magic turns fabric into a fray free, paper like material so that it can be manipulated in ways that were previously unavailable to fabric artists.
