Obviously you need to get hold of a shade to start with. You can either buy a new one, or you can even use one that you have. Cover the metal frame of the shade with plastic. You can even get plastic covers that look like a floral ribbon is you want to get really fancy.If not, satin material or cotton ribbon covers are also good enough. You also need a trim to cover the bottom of the shade. You need to ensure that the trim that you purchase is strong enough to hold the fringe. The trim has loops in it. This will ensure that there is space between the fringes and they don’t form clusters.

You have to carefully regulate the spacing between the beads. Cut the trim in equal measurements to cover edge of the shade. Fix the beads to the lower part of the edge. Make knots using thread so that they remain fixed to the edge. Sow the beads to the fabric of the lamp shade.You should not sow through the holes. Make designs in with the beads. Follow one type of designing pattern. Then when your guests comment on how great the shade looks you can tell them you made it yourself.
