I am not a lamp shade expert or something like that but I have seen many lamp shades made from different materials like plastic or cloth but one thing that no one could say was they saw a lamp shade made from duct tape.

Step 1: What you will need.

To start this lampshade you will need the follows tools and supplies.

- A lamp preferably without a lampshade
- 1.25 mm or similar galvanized steel wire
- 2.5 mm similar galvanized steel wire
- Duct tape
- A4 filing sleeve (Not shown)

- Needle nose pliers
- Average pliers as shown in my Tool Roll instructable or similar
- Ruler
- Permanent marker (Not shown)
- Utility Knife (Not shown)

I just covered my lamp shade with duct tape, but, thanks for the idea!
