Step 1: Materials

You will need:
Duct tape
Paper
X-acto knife ( scissors would work too)
cutting board

Step 2: Step One


First make a cone out of paper and cut the bottom edge flat, I used green paper because I could not use Duct Tape.

Step 3: Step Two

You will need to make triangles of tape, with enough stickiness to stick it on the paper. When you do the next one, make sure the side of the next one is halfway over the first. Make one row of these. To make the triangles, cut a strip of tape two inches long, and fold one corner to the middle, and do the same with the other.

Step 4:

Create another row as shown in the picture. Repeat until you cover the whole cone of paper with tape.

Step 5: The Finished Product

Here is the finished product, do not add light or you might start a fire.

    without the green duct tape it looks like paper covered with badly wrapped clear tape every where

    Sorry, I forgot to title step 4, this was my first instructable. I discovered you can add an LED sticking out the top.
