Introduction: Colorful Cardboard Lampshade
If you need a cheap easy way to reduce the brightness of your night lamp, or to make a personalized lampshade, look no more!
-Colored tissue paper (Regular paper works too)
Step 1: Draw Your Pattern
Draw the shape of the lamp shade and the shapes you want to project onto the cardboard. I'm making a cube, so I made 4 squares and a tab to paste it later.
Step 2: Cutt Your Pattern
Use the utility knife and the scissors to cut the pattern you drew.
Step 3: Glue the Paper
Glue the paper you chose to the cardboard.
Step 4: Fold It
Fold the lamp shade and glue the tab. Put it on the bulb.
Step 5: Enjoy!
You can experiment with different shapes and patterns. I made a cylindrical lamp shade and a wall shade too.
