    I like the shade part to hang over shelves but when I tried to put material on a roll shade using adhesive glue, the material came off. I tried other glue and the same thing. Does anyone know how to keep the material on the shade?

    Thank you,
    Kathy

    Staples are what they use in making of shades, I think. The ones I have taken apart, yah I am one of those that has to see how they are made. They have had staples. Hope this helps. Or even small nails with bigger heads. Whatever works.

    I like the duct tape idea and staples...I'm also thinking of the self adhesive VELCRO? in case you want to change it. If it doesn't work, try stapling the velcro pieces in place for security.

    I've seen them with staples and double sided adhesive tape. Maybe something will work!
