THIS IS THE LAMP SHADE WHICH HAS BEEN MADE FROM OLD COLD DRINK PLASTIC BOTTLE,AS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGE.THIS ONE CAN BE EVEN USED AS LANTERN DURING FESTIVALS.IT DIDN'T COST ME EVEN A RUPEE TO BUILD THIS.

TO BUILD THIS IT DIDN'T EVEN TOOK MORE THEN 3 HOURS AND ITS AMAZING FOR THE PEOPLE WHO TRY TO MAKE BEST FROM WASTE.

ANY ONE CAN EASILY MAKE THIS.TO MAKE YOU UNDERSTAND IN A EASY WAY,I HAVE DIVIDED ITS METHOD OF BUILDING IN 5 DIFFERENT PARTS.SO FOLLOW THE EACH PART AND TRY TO MAKE YOUR OWN LAMP SHADE OR LANTERN.

SAFETY-ALL THE TOOLS SHOULD BE HANDLED CAREFULLY AND ELECTRIC CONNECTION SHOULD BE DONE UNDER ADULTS SUPERVISION.

Step 1: PART 1-MATERIALS NEEDED

TO MAKE THE LAMP SHADE WHICH CAN BE EVEN USED AS LANTERN,THE FOLLOWING MATERIALS YOU SHOULD ACQUIRE.

1) ANY PLASTIC BOTTLE( 1 LITRE COLD DRINK BOTTLE).

2) A SCISSOR AND A RED MARKER.

Step 2: MAKING MARKING AND CUTTING OF BOTTOM PART OF THE PLASTIC BOTTLE

AFTER ACQUIRING A OLD PLASTIC BOTTLE,MARK A LINE ON THE BOTTOM OF THE PLASTIC BOTTLE AND AFTER DOING THAT,CUT THROUGH THE LINE WITH THE HELP OF SCISSOR AS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGES.

Step 3: MAKING MARKING ON THE PLASTIC BOTTLE

NOW MARK A LINE ON THE PLASTIC BOTTLE AS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGE.

Step 4: MAKING HORIZONTAL MARKING ON THE PLASTIC BOTTLE

NOW AGAIN MARK A LINES ON THE PLASTIC BOTTLE AND AFTER FINISHING IT,THIS IS HOW IT WILL LOOK AS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGES.

Step 5: CUTTING THROUGH THE LINES

AFTER MAKING LINES ON THE PLASTIC BOTTLE,CUT THROUGH THE LINES WITH THE HELP OF SCISSOR TILL THE BOTTOM END AS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGES.

AFTER CUTTING THROUGH ALL THE LINES THIS IS HOW IT WILL LOOK AS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGES.

Step 6: BENDING THE STRIPS

AFTER CUTTING THROUGH THE LINES,BEND THE STRIP UPWARD.DO THIS WITH EACH AND EVERY STRIP AND THIS IS HOW IT WILL LOOK AFTER BENDING ALL THE STRIPS AS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGE.

Step 7: BENDING THE ENDING PART OF THE STRIP

AFTER BENDING THE STRIPS,NOW BEND THE BOTTOM PART OF THE STRIPS VERY LITTLE WHICH WILL GIVE OVERALL A PRETTY LOOK TO THE LAMP SHADE OR LANTERN AS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGES.

Step 8: PART 2-MAKING PLASTIC CHAINS (MATERIALS NEEDED)

TO MAKE A PLASTIC CHAIN OUT OF PLASTIC BOTTLE,THESE ARE THE FOLLOWING ITEMS YOU MAY REQUIRE.

1) OLD COLD DRINK PLASTIC BOTTLE( 500ML PLASTIC BOTTLE).

2) A RED MARKER AND A SCISSOR.

Step 9: MAKING MARKING ON THE BOTTLE AND CUTTING OFF THE BOTTOM PART OF THE BOTTLE

NOW MAKE MARKING ON THE BOTTLE WITH MARKER AND AFTER DOING THAT CUT OFF THE BOTTOM PART OF THE BOTTLE WITH SCISSOR.

AFTER CUTTING THE BOTTOM PART CUT THROUGH THE LINES MARKED ON THE BOTTOM WITH THE HELP OF THE SCISSOR HOW IT WILL LOOK IS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGES.

Step 10: SEPARATING THE STRIPS FROM THE BOTTLE

AFTER CUTTING THROUGH THE LINES MARKED ON THE BOTTLE,SEPARATE OUT THE STRIPS FROM THE PLASTIC BOTTLE BY CUTTING IT WITH THE HELP OF THE SCISSOR AS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGES.

AFTER SEPARATING THE STRIPS FROM THE BOTTLE,COLLECT IT IN YOUR HAND AND AGAIN CUT THE STRIPS FROM THE MIDDLE AS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGES.THE REASON I HAD TO CUT BECAUSE THE STRIPS WERE TOO LONG IN LENGTH AND WHICH IS WHY I HAD TO AGAIN CUT IT FROM MIDDLE OF THE STRIPS.

Step 11: STAPLING THE STRIPS TOGETHER TO MAKE CHAIN

NOW TAKE A SINGLE STRIP AND PLACE IT BETWEEN THE STAPLER AND STAPLE IT.AFTER THAT AGAIN TAKE A SINGLE STRIP AND PASS IT THROUGH THE PREVIOUS STAPLED STRIP AND AGAIN STAPLE THE NON-STAPLED STRIP BY PLACING IT BETWEEN THE STAPLER AS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGES.

REPEAT THE ABOVE PROCEDURE TO CONNECT THE FEW OTHER STRIPS RINGS TO EACH OTHER.

TRY TO FIX 7 STRIPS RINGS TO EACH OTHER AND THIS IS HOW IT WILL LOOK AFTER CONNECTING THE STRIPS RINGS TO EACH OTHER AS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGE.

MAKE 3 OTHER CHAINS BY FOLLOWING THE ABOVE PROCEDURE,SO IN ALL YOU WILL NEED 4 PLASTIC STRIPS RINGS CHAINS.

Step 12: CONNECTING PLASTIC STRIPS CHAIN ON LAMP SHADE OR LANTERN

AFTER MAKING THE PLASTIC CHAIN,MAKE ONE HOLE ON FOUR SIDES WITH ANY POINTED TOOL.AFTER MAKING HOLES AGAIN TAKE FOUR OTHER PLASTIC STRIPS AND PASS ONE STRIP THROUGH ONE HOLE.

AFTER PASSING THE STRIP THROUGH THE HOLE,PLACE ONE CHAIN ON THAT SINGLE STRIP AND AGAIN STAPLE THE STRIP TOGETHER BY PLACING IT BETWEEN THE STAPLER AS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGES.

REPEAT THE SAME PROCEDURE FOR CONNECTING THE OTHER THREE CHAINS ON THAT LAMP SHADE.

THIS IS HOW IT WILL LOOK AFTER CONNECTING ALL THE FOUR CHAINS ON THAT LAMP SHADE OR LANTERN AS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGES.

Step 13: PART 3-DECORATION (MATERIALS NEEDED)

YOU CAN DECORATE THE LAMP SHADE OR LANTERN IN ANY WAY YOU WANT.BUT HERE I HAVE USED WATER PAINT TO DECORATE.SO YOU MUST REQUIRE THE FOLLOWING ITEMS,

TO HANG THE LANTERN IN ANY PLACE,THE FOLLOWING MATERIALS YOU WILL REQUIRE.

1) ANY CHAIN(YOU COULD EVEN USE ANY ROPE INSTEAD OF CHAIN)

2) A SMALL STEEL STRING

3)A POINTED TOOL TO MAKE THE HOLE

Step 16: MAKING HOLE ON THE CAP AND FIXING THE CHAIN

TAKE OUT THE CAP OF THE BOTTLE AND USING A POINTED TOOL PRESS IT ON THE CAP AND THIS IS HOW THE HOLE IS MADE IS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGE.

NOW PASS THE STEEL STRING THROUGH THE HOLE OF THE CAP AND THEN BENT IT USING MONKEY PLIER.NOW TAKE THE CHAIN AND AGAIN PASS THE OTHER END OF THE STEEL STRING THROUGH THE HOLE OF THE CHAIN AND TIGHT THE STEEL STRING WITH THE MONKEY PLIER AS SHOWN IN THE ABOVE IMAGE.
