Try This: Woven Lamp Shade

Recycle old magazines and catalogs into this woven wire mesh lamp shade.

Be sure to use compact fluorescent bulbs with these shades. They burn much cooler than incandescent light bulbs, minimizing fire hazards with any shade made of paper. Although the loose ends of the paper strips stay neat within the mesh matrix, check periodically to make sure that no ends have come loose and can make contact with the bulb.
