DIY Lampshade (icosahedron)





Introduction: DIY Lampshade (icosahedron)

About: Find the craft you like in EzyCraft tutorials in youtube. It is a great resource for you to make paper crafts, ranging from template card, origami to decor DIY.

The latest lampshade I tried to construct.. It requires a bit of cutting from templates.

You will need 8 sheets of paper or card (A4, 180 gsm), templates (provided in the video description), double-sided tape and craft knife. It is really simple and easy to make.

    An Icosahedron has 20 triangular shaped sides. But thanks very much for the project.

    This is in fact a truncated Icosahedron (or Dodecahedron) where the corners are cut off. It is the same shape as a Buckminsterfullerene or a foot (soccer) ball.

    Very cool!

    If you wanted to, you should share the templates right here on instructables as an attachment to a step. You just add them the same as a photo, and then users can grab them right here after watching your video.

    Good stuff, thanks for sharing this great lampshade! :)
