Voilà. You are finished. You could use two rolls of ribbon, but I prefer the shade semi-transparent.
Wrap the ribbon around the shade keeping it tight.
Attach the ribbon to the frame with a few small stitches.
Over the years, I have created a few lampshades with ribbon and have always loved the result.
This vintage lamp needed a shade, so I grabbled a roll of wide nylon ribbon and some thread. The whole thing cost me $5 and took about 15 minutes.
Materials: One 10-yard roll of purple nylon ribbon and matching thread
