Lampshade made of empty dish soap bottles. You will need:
6 bottles,
one lid of a yoghurt or icecream pot,
16 tie-wraps, scissors,
small hacksaw or sharp knife,
sticky tape
cap of a big soap bottle
turret punch or awl
and of course a lamp, socket, and electric wire.

Step 1: open the bottle

Draw three diagonal lines on the bottle.cut off the bottom and top. I like to use a small hacksaw
<p>Lovely! </p>
Congrats! Gosh I thought they were real feathers.
After winning second prize in the lamp contest, feels i can really fly with them.
I loved it. Great idea. Thanks!
Beautiful work. And they might be cleaned with a gentle spray, minus the electrical parts at the time of cleaning. Keep up the good work!
