Instructions
1. Unroll a length of sequined ribbon approximately the same circumference as the lampshade, but don’t cut it from the roll yet.
2. Apply glue to the top seam of the lampshade in a ¾-inch vertical line, so that you can attach the entire width of the sequined ribbon to the shade.
3. Space the lines of glue about every 2 or 3 inches, until the sequins cover the entire uppermost exterior section of the shade.
4. Cut the length of sequined ribbon from the roll and glue the end piece to the shade.
5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 for the bottom portion of the shade.
6. Allow the glue to dry. Place the shade back on the lamp base for use.
