I cannot believe how crazy expensive some of the more unique and statement light shades are. So I have been scouring the internet for tutorials for alternative ideas. The thing most shocking of all is that most of them are made from paper! Here are just a selection of what I have found.
You can find the very simple but effective tutorial for this light shade on Scrap Hacker .
Be the envy of everyone you know with this cute lamp. You can find the tutorial for it on Make: Craft.
I cannot believe how simple this light shade is to create, especially because all you need to create it is some chicken wire and paper. You too can create this beauty by looking at Craftster.
Another great light shade idea from The Craft Dept on the Martha Stewart site.
Over on Cut Out And Keep they have made this stunning light shade using paper cups!
Although this one does not use paper I just had to include it because I LOVE IT! It uses doilies and the pattern they create on the wall is lovely. You can find this light shade on Emmmy Lizzzy.
