Introduction: How to Make a Multi-coloured Lamp Shade

What you will need: One balloon 7 sheets of tissue paper PVA glue 2 yoghurt pots One paint brush

Step 1: Make the Start

Rip up the tissue paper into small squares, Put some PVA glue in a pot and add a bit of water to loosen it up, Blow up the balloon and place the bottom of it in the pot so it stands up.

Step 2: Start to Stick the Paper

Get one square of tissue paper and place it on the balloon and use the brush to put the glue on. Keep doing this until the balloon is covered then leave it to dry. Once dry cover with another layer.

Step 3: Pop the Balloon

Once both layers are dry pop the balloon and trim the bottom of the ball to make it stand up right. Then put some lights inside the shade and you have a light shade. :)

I have added a end photo and to make it light up I put LED battery powered light inside (red and green). Good luck :)
