Just saw your question - it's very easy! You could use fabric for this project too, but I liked the finish on the wallpaper for this idea. I simply wrapped it and secured it. You can use a sample piece to cover a lampshade, just depending on the size of the lamp - and there's no need to apply it like you would to a wall because you can just apply it with double sided tape. This way you still have wallpaper for projects if you decide to take it down. It only took a few minutes and looks so pretty with the light shining through!
