You will need:

·         An old lamp shade

·         Cardboard bigger than the base and top of the lamp shade (I used foam board)

·         A exact-o knife

·         A light

·         a see through cloth that you could see through when a light shined through

·         and the head you plan to put in it

Step 1: Lamp Shade to Hat Box

Start by tracing 1 circle that would fit in the smaller side of your lamp shade (or the top), then cut another circle bigger than the bottom of your shad (to get the right look of Hattie’s hat box). You will also need to cut two circles of your cloth to go over the cardboard.
you spell silhouette correctly but when it comes to skull you fail.. interesting. <br> <br>anyway, keen to see the rest of this, looks like an interesting prop!
I get the feeling that this project could be truly awesome, if you only happened to show what the finished effect looks like! I'm Curious!
when i get it together i'll edit this tutorial <br>but until then this is the best i got :/
