Step 1: Needed

The things needed are just a newspaper and a piece of cellophane tape.

Step 2:

Fold the newspaper into a long pleated sheet and fold it into a triangle with two sides overlapping each other.

In other words, you need to first make a square of the long pleated sheet and then overlap into a triangle.

Step 3:

Staple the overlapping ends and usind pieces of cellophane tape stick the triangle to the wall just below the lamp.

The idea is to prevent heat of the lamp from burning the paper.

This allows a split light beam on the wall and shaded light to the room.

Step 4:

Step 6: Designs on Wall

Try it! Its a nice way to create elegant designs of light on the wall.
