Fold along the score lines and glue the two tabs to the corresponding numbers on the folded edges. Use clips to hold everything while the glue dries.
Now we have a half cylinder with tabs for hanging!
If you decide to change the size or designs of this piece, it is very important that the paper is kept at a safe distance from the light bulb, and use LED night light!
Plug in the night light. Put the paper shade over it and find a good spot to hang it so it covers the night light and it is easy to reach the switch.
Use a clear pushpin or a tiny nail to hang the paper shade from the horizontal tab we added in step 3.
If you glue some colored tissue paper on the inside, you will get colored glow. I used yellow, pink and green tissue paper in the lights below.
The trick is to use 2-3 layers of tissue paper so the colors are rich enough.
Easy enough, right? I have some new ideas brewing. Any wishes and requests for new designs? Feel free to leave a comment!
