This lampshade looks complicated but it's quite easy to make.

  1. Take some digital snapshots of your favorite plate.
  2. I used the Fluted Mega plate from Royal Copenhagen.
  3. Enlarge the pattern several hundred percent, print out and cut out.
  4. I just glued the pattern to the shade with craft glue.
  5. It's so beautiful at night with the light coming through the pattern.
