How to Make a Paper Clip Lampshade

This is a simple and effective way to tart-up an inexpensive paper lampshade using office supplies.

The Materials

Paper lampshade

Decorative paper clips (I found these circle paper clips at Target; 50 for $2.99.)

Small paper punch (Or anything pointy will do.)

The Process

Mark shade with pencil at uniform intervals. I spaced my markings 1 inch apart.

Punch holes at markings.

Slip paper clips into holes.

For another office supply alternative, how about using key tags with metal rings instead of paper clips?  And for a non-office supply approach, try using dangling earrings or tiny Christmas balls.
