Recycled items:

  • Small lampshade
  • 50x50cm padded table protector (one side felt and one side rubber)
  • Light fitting

 

You will also need:

  • Scissors
  • Paper and pencil to draw a template
  • Felt tip pen
  • Glue gun and bullets

 

Method:

  1. Draw two leaf templates on a piece of paper – one big (18cm) and one a little smaller (10cm).
  2. Trace the outlines onto the table protector with a pen, on the rubber side.
  3. Cut out about 40 small ones and 40 big ones using scissors.
  4. Take the small lampshade and ensure that the light fitting is securely attached to it.
  5. Start gluing the big leaves around the edge of the lampshade and build up leaves on top until you’ve covered the whole lampshade to the top – only the cable should be visible coming out of the top.
