Papyrus lampshade

One of my fourth of July weekend crafts was creating a new lampshade for a free lamp I acquired years ago. The lampshade that came with it broke during a windy day last fall.

The left picture was taken before the lamp met itโ€™s demise. Right image shows the interior lamp structure. The small ring at the bottom fits into bulb base.

Because the lamp was originally free I was having a hard time justifying spending a lot of money for a new one. I spent $12 on a piece of papyrus paper and $16 on a container of Yes! glue that will be handy for future projects. I have more paper left so I hope I run into another free lamp.
