The pendant light shades come with a standard sized fitting ring, which will suit standard pendant lights. Installation of your lamp shade is quick and simple, and can be done in a few simple steps.
Step 1: Remove the bulb
Before you do anything, make sure that you have switched your light off; it's a good idea to turn off the mains electric at the fuse box. Then first of all, remove the light bulb from your pendant fitting.
Step 2: Undo the light fitting
Next you need to unscrew the bottom of the light fitting. A lot of pendant lights have a black ring, with tabs to make this easy to locate and twist - for those that don't, you should be able to see the line where the two parts split if you look closely. Once you have done this step, you should have revealed a screw thread.
Step 3: Fasten your lampshade
After this all you need to do is place your lampshade on the fitting (it should just slide over the thread) and replace the piece that you just removed, which will hold the lampshade in place.
Step 4: Replace the bulb
Finally replace the bulb, switch on your electrics, and try switching the light on to test that you've correctly inserted your bulb - it really is as easy as that.
Your shade will come with a removable adaptor to alter the size of the fitting ring, as displayed in the image above.

If you can’t decide on which photo to use, you can upload multiple images and create a photo collage. This can be done using one of our pre-set montage templates, or you can create your own entirely from scratch. It’s super easy to do and the possibilities are endless.
Step 1 – Click the start design button & select your product options.
Step 2 – Go to the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab, click the ‘add images/Text’ button on your product & ‘Select Images to Upload’ or use the Facebook/Instagram tabs.
Step 3 – Choose the images you want to use for your collage, upload & select them from the uploaded photos list.
Step 4 – Click ‘Create montage’ & select your collage style.
Step 5 – Add the collage to your design.
Your design will be printed edge to edge around the drum. The fabric that is used for this is a stiff, matte material to maintain its shape. It is translucent and has a slightly textured finish to it, which will give your personalised drum pendant lighting an authentic look. The choice of materials mean that your photos will look vivid both with your light on, as well as when it's off.
As your pendant light shade will be attached to a ceiling light, it's worth considering either using a single photo or a collage that uses fewer, larger pictures in the scattered style to ensure your design decorates the whole way round. This means that you will be able to enjoy them - with the light on or off - from the comfort and safety of the ground.
Because it is so customisable, this lampshade is bound to be loved by everyone. One idea we love is to use pictures of your family and have the light in the baby's bedroom, so they always have their nearest and dearest watching over them.
