Why we love it: These easy-to-make mini lampshades do double duty: They instantaneously spruce up your sleeping quarters and make a trendy reading light.
What you need: Measuring tape; fabric scraps; computer; printer; printer paper; fabric template; pencil; chalk; scissors; iron; clear 9 oz. plastic cups; power drill; Mod Podge; paintbrush; bowl; water; and 1 string of clear lights.
How to make it: Measure the width of the headboard, and then mark its length against the strand of lights. Determine the number of lamps needed. Print the fabric template from the computer and cut it from the paper. Iron the fabric scraps on an iron-safe surface. Trace the template with the chalk onto the fabric and cut out. Repeat until there are enough shades for the length of the headboard. Stack the cups, and drill a hole through them all. Coat each cup with Mod Podge, and adhere a fabric strip around each. Let dry. Insert a bulb into each drilled hole. Repeat until complete, and then string the tiny lampshades along the top of the headboard.
