Measure and cut your cane webbing for 3 drum shades out of the roll of cane with sharp scissors.
Open up the embroidery hoops and apply glue to the inside of one of the hoops. I wanted to make three drum shades in different sizes.
Place the cane webbing inside the hoop and cut off the overlapping access with scissors. Make sure to leave about 2-inches overlapping that you can glue together later.
Work on the top part of the drum shade by adding glue to the inside of the second closed hoop and add it to the top of the shade.
Pre-drill holes into your drum shades so you can add the eye hooks for hanging with the metal wire.
Now it is time to hang the drum shades over your existing chandelier or you can use them as a single pendant light.
Whether you are a renter or just looking to cover up an existing light fixture this is a great stylish solution. Get the full tutorial below
