Step 1: Getting Started
The items I used are:
2 23'" quilting hoops
12"x18" heavy duty template plastic (also found in the quilting section of the craft store)
3 1-1/4" mug hooks
3 picture hangers
6 1-1/2" S-hooks
Tips: The plastic can get static and pick up a lot of dust. I wiped mine down with a dryer sheet in the beginning and at the end to cut back on it.
You will need to calculate how many plastic sheets you need by figuring out the circumference of your shade. The formula for this is circumference = pi x diameter. In my case C = 3.1415 X 23". My circumference is about 72.25". I used 18" sheets so 72.25"/18" = 4.01. I needed at least 5 sheets to have enough to go all the way around.
You could pretty much use any kind of material for the sides of the shade, but I think something with some rigidity will hold up better.
No matter what material you use, be sure not to place it to close to the bulb for safety purposes.
