Light hanging lampshade
Now we will make a light hanging lampshade for a small room - a small kitchen or hallway. This lampshade is made in ethnic style, which has recently become very popular. It is very appropriate in a country house, in the country, where sometimes there are many small rooms. Prost in production. The material for it will be reed, which we can meet on the shores of lakes and rivers. But if you can not get such material for you - you can use ordinary willow rods, after cleaning them from the bark and drying them. The design made of reed will be easier, because this plant is hollow inside, and therefore practically weightless. Also, we need a bit of tracing paper (which can be successfully replaced with baking paper), cotton or jute twine, PVA glue, pencil, scissors, needle, thick reel thread. Chop the reed comfortably with garden pruners. Try to choose more even reeds that are the same in thickness.Cut 6 pieces of approximately 30 cm in length for the base and three pieces that are 4 cm less in length for vertical posts. But you can change this ratio in accordance with your individual project.Fold the triangle and tie the sticks together with a string - you get a rigid structure. In the same way collect the second triangle. (3) Now you can connect vertical racks in series. The frame is ready. For greater strength, we put on the twine joints with glue and leave the product to dry.Then cut the side walls of the paper. Here it will be convenient to use a pencil - just draw around the contours from the inside. Cut out without stock, as the paper should be more or less in a stretched state. Now, with the help of a needle, pass the thread through the corners of the prepared sheets.Tie them so that they do not twist. At the same time try not to pull the thread, which, if careless, can cut through the paper. So consistently tie all three sheets.Now it remains to make a device for hanging. It is very simple - pull the thread from each corner to the opposite side of the triangle, tie it. Thus, in the center will get an asterisk, which will allow the lampshade to hang on the cartridge with an electric bulb. Its minimum weight in this case is the main advantage. Of course, you should not place it in rooms where there are strong drafts - the construction is not designed for this.If you release the thread at the corners longer - get even greater similarity with a kite. You can collect them and tie them with a bundle, use multi-colored threads.If you want - add a picture or hieroglyphs - get a Chinese style.
