It's not messy...not difficult ...and easy to clean up .. this is very important i feel for any party! Ask anyone who has to clean up or
organize a party...they would tell you! :-D
All you have to do is print the template onto paper, velum or tracing paper and you are done! it's that easy :-)
err...you have to cut and paste too :-D
I have used Pixlr to make these...it was fun experimenting as it's the first time I have used it.
for those of you who don't want to go through the process of making your own.. you are free to download
my finished lamp shades...decorating your dinner table will be a snap! :-)
Step 1: How to Make the Shades
Open images in Pixlr
Resize the pictures if you feel they are too big
then select the wand and click on the white section of the boogi man
then right click your mouse and click invert selection
then go to edit and click copy
now go to the lampshade template and click on the window and paste.
you should get a big boogie face..click the wand tool again and click on the boogi man and right click and chose free transform then resize and turn how you want
Once you are happy save the changes...then go to the pinch tool and pinch the eyes how you want...it gives a more mean look :-)
repeat the steps for the remaining 2 faces...
now just print it on an orange paper and paste near the tabs .
The Bats were done the same way but without pinching
Step 2: The Spider Web
then i did the same and copied and pasted to the lamp shade...
later i took the pencil tool and added the lines to fill up the gaps
now do the same and as in previous steps and add the little spiders where you want
you now have a spider web..lampshade !
I have included a blank lampshade template so you may design it how you would like :-)
Step 3: Assembling
cut the shape out and paste with a tape or glue. :-)
