DIY Paper Lampshade (Tutorial)
If you like the idea of making your own lamp out of paper, then here’s a full tutorial on how to make a paper lampshade.
What you will need:
- Glue Gun
- Colorless glue sticks for hot glue gun (diameter 7 mm)
- Lamp base made of chrome with a cream-colored screen (height 13 cm, diameter 15 cm)
- 50 paper plates (diameter 18 cm)
- Ruler (length 30 cm), pencil, scissors.
How to Make a Paper Lampshade
To do this first you have to mark 2 lines in the middle of a paper plate, leaving a distance of about 1 cm.
Create this plate along the lines. Then mark lines on yet another paper plate in an identical way.
Reduce the second paper plate along the lines. Now glue this semi-circle plate to the half of the first creased plate. Repeat these measures with yet another creased plate and semi-circle plate and put together far more.
Glue the first plate to the lampshade. Glue the second plate to the lampshade and join the plates with each other. Repeat this phase right up until all the lampshade is covered.
