2. To make a cylindrical lamp shade, roll a firm piece of oversized paper into a cylinder that's big enough to comfortably accommodate the bulb. To make it really easy to release the lamp shade when the glue dries, put a layer of wax paper, tin foil or baking parchment over your paper cylinder. Wrap glue-dripped string around the cylinder (see instructions in step 1), making sure you have lots of diagonal strings to make the shade strong and to create a solid lip of horizonal strings at the top where you will attach it to the light. Use this same technique to make the conical lamp shade, but roll your paper into a cone isntead.
