Here’s a super cheap & unique way to make a great “reading” lamp shade. The total for the shade & book cost $0.70 !!
You’ll need an old book, shade, circle cutter, and some Mod Podge.
First tear out a stack of pages. Set your cutter to apox. 4 inches. If you don’t have a circle cutter you could always trace a plastic lid (but the project goes so much fast with it !).
Apply your glue and start to layer. Its important to get your layers lined up & even (found this out the hard way!) That way when it’s lit up there’s a nice pattern.
I started at the bottom & then made a row on the top. Then I moved on to the middle. Depending on the size of the shade will determine how many rows you will need.
That’s it! Place it on your lamp & light it up!!
I really love the pattern & warm light it gives.
