Step 1: What You Need
Hot glue gun
Above is a full video tutorial. Listed steps to follow.
Step 2: Cut and Recover
Cut the legs off your pair of leggings (or tights).
Keep the large top section and pull it over your lampshade.
Step 3: Fasten
Hot glue the leggings to the inside of your lampshade (top and bottom (if needed)).
Trim the excess material.
Step 4: Leggings Into a Shirt
Grab a pair of leggings and fold them in half.
**Looks best with leggings that don't have a seam up the centre.**
Step 5: Cut Head Opening
Cut along the inside seam about 2 or 2/12 inches down each leg from the centre.
Cut out the seam along your new opening.
**Depending on how big or small you want your neckline, adjust the size of your cut**
I would suggest starting smaller as you can always make it bigger.
