When we saw Paperchase’s new range of luxury papers we couldn’t wait to get making. Editor Ella has already used the purple peacock and geometric design to create a luxury coptic bound notebook - click here to see. And we also thought it would be fun to use the rustic green and buff spotty paper to update a white square lantern from hanginglanterns.co.uk. So, take a look at our super simple revamping project…

• Assemble the shade by pulling up and placing the wire frame in the centre. Now take the paper and cut into rough squares using the spots as your guide - you should have four dots down, four across. You don't have to be super precise as you want it to look rustic. Affix a line of double-sided-tape to the under-side of the top of each square.
• Starting from the bottom front side of the shade, adhere four squares (or however many cover the side) alongside each other so they cover the bottom edge of the shade. Repeat on all sides.
• Layer a line of squares so they overlap the first line. Repeat this row upon row until the shade is covered.
