Wash your hands thoroughly (any dirt or grime will easily transfer to the surface of the lampshade). Use painter's tape to cover and protect the edges of the lampshade while you're working.
Poke holes in a spiral pattern with a scratch awl -- this will make stitching through the lampshade easier. Start in the center of the pattern and work in a spiral toward the outside.
You will need to make side-by-side pairs of holes for stitching in and out of the lampshade. Be sure to cut enough length of twine to stitch a complete pattern so only the ends need to be knotted.
Thread the needle with a knot in the end of the twine to secure it as you stitch from inside the lampshade to the outside.
After stitching a few shapes, remove the tape and attach the lampshade to an existing lamp base or a new one from Lowe's.
