This might sound a bit funny, but the idea of making this lamp came from my.... dream! :p So, I decided to make my dream come true. This ible will show you how to make lamp shades from small tree logs. It's very easy to make, cheap too.

Step 1: Materials needed

To make these lamp shades you'll need:

1) Twigs,
2) Super glue and white glue,
3) X-acto knife,
4) Scissor,
5) Cardboard,
6) Lighting system.

<p>this is so cool!!! please go on my instructable its called &quot;twig pencils&quot;</p>
How did you photograph to get the effect and the red color ?Is the color the background of a wall or some thing?
I used a multi color light bulb, besides the wall was pink, for that reason the light effect seemed a bit reddish!

Hey, I've finished my branch lamp version,, LOL<br> But the reflection of the lamp light isn't as beautiful as yours<br> What kind of lamp you used??<br> <br> <a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-SN-Zqo6VXU0/UW4byE3WtDI/AAAAAAAABVs/0TXE0W-AWwc/s640/Branch_Lamp%232.JPG" rel="nofollow">This is my version</a>&nbsp;hahhaha<br> <br>
Love the design of the lampshade you made, it's really nice. <br>The usual round light bulb creates a beautiful light effect with this lampshade. Let me know if it worked, I'm sure your lampshade would create way cooler effect than mines :)
