Step 1: Cut the Plastic Bottle

Take an empty plastic bottle and hold it horizontal. Cut the upper part of it carefully with knife. This is to make the head of our lampshade.

Step 2: Paint the Plastic Bottle

Now paint the plastic bottle with green and yellow color. You can use acrylic colors for this.

Step 3: Draw Characters

In order to decorate further draw some tribal characters on the plastic head using black color. This type of drawing is called "Warli" art which is an ancient drawing art form in one of the tribes living in the forests in India.

Step 4: Final Look of Lamphead

This is how your lampshade head will look like after drawing is done.

Step 5: Make Plastic Leaves

Now we will make some leaves. For this, cut a small plastic piece from rest of the bottle and cut it further in leaves shape. Paint and decorate these plastic leaves in green colors and add detailing.

Step 6: Make Crepe Paper Leaves

Next take a crepe paper and create some leaves out of it. Also collect some ready made flowers from the market.

Step 7: Create a Wired Stand

Now take the wire and form a triangular shape with it. This will form the base of the lampshade.

Step 8: Complete the Stand

Erect the stand and it will look like this.

Step 9: Decorate the Stand

Now cover the stand with color tape and attach the plastic leaves and crepe paper leaves on it. It will start looking more beautiful!

Step 10: Fix the Lamphead to It

Now attache the lamphead to the stand at the top. Use glue gun to make it tight. Make a hole at the top of the lampshade and insert the stand shaft in it to fix it tight.

Step 11: Our Lampshade Is READY!

Finally fix small torch light inside the lamphead witht he help of glue gun. Now your lampsahde craft is ready!
