    I use Contact Paper or Wall Paper on the outside of the shade. You can also use Material or even ribbons.

    Depends on the look you are going for.

    I would clean the lampshade well before applying any of these ideas. I would also make sure that any glue or adhesive you use is "heat proof" as the bulb gets very hot.

    My favorite idea for lamp shades I stold from my mom. She would cover the shade with a bright fabric. Then add a dangling trim around the bottom. Sometimes 3D butterflies were placed on the fabric. I hope this gives you some ideas.

    Wallpaper works great and then ribbon at the top and bottom edge to give it a Finnish that is more professional..or lace or upholstery trim. You can also apply burlap with mod podge and use Rick rack or hemp string at the top and bottom. Good luck with what ever you pick!
