Try This: Lampshade Made From Plastic Bags

See plastic bags in a whole new light.

Fold lampshade in half and crease. Using a skewer, poke a hole through top hem about 3⁄4 inch in from the fold. Repeat on opposite end and again on bottom hem, creating four holes near each corner. Then fold shade in half along the opposite axis. Make holes in the four corners as before.
