Start by disassembling your pallets. Then from the leftover wood decide the dimensions of your base and lay out the necessary pieces required to do so. Mark out the required space, cut and then laminate the pieces together with wood glue. Once laminated if the pieces have uneven surfaces sand them down so that it can rest evenly on a table.

As an improvement you could line the inside of the shade with tin foil paper. This would enhance the light shone down and reduce the light leakage through the sides. Infact you could adapt it to use as many solar lights as required.
