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 it’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.
