I have a friend who has the most beautiful lampshades with hares and stags adorning them. I love love love the hare version but know it is way out of my budget and I balk at the thought of paying so much for something that, although beautiful, is really just frivolous.
So, when my wobbly standard lamp's shade wobbled one wobble too far and I had to replace it, I purchased a plain warm cream drum shade - bordering on boring. (No, it was boring) But I had a plan!
This is the back - hence all the vertical stripes - I forgot to take a photo of the front.....
When you spin it round....
A silver birch woodland appears,
while a shy stag tip toes out.
Want to try it for yourself?
This is how I did it.
I drew an outline on brown paper,
if you squint you will see
a vixen on the top right...
...then I cut it out and with the use of a small piece of tape...
Suddenly my birch woodland had a vixen
following a secret foxy pathway.
A quick peep behind the scenes....
