Used lampshade from a thrift store
Leaves of various shapes and sizes
Arborvitae sprig, pine needles, fern frond, etc.
White glue, spray adhesive, or tape
A small plastic bag of rice, beans, etc.
Step 1: Preparing the Leaves, Etc
Step 2: Final Assembly
Lay the shade on its side and either put glue on one side of the leaf or spray one side of the leaf with adhesive. Remember that the leaves go on the inside of the shade. If you use spray adhesive also spray the spot where you want the leaf to go. Position the leaf and place a sheet of wax paper over it. Place the bag of rice etc. on the wax paper to hold it in position until the glue dries.
When the glue is dry, remove the bag of rice and the wax paper. Repeat the process until you have added as many as you want.
Assemble the shade to your lamp and enjoy a reminder of the outdoors every time you turn it on.
This shade isn't for everyone but the idea can be adapted to create a variety of seasonal shade.
