I used watercolor paper to make this one with an antique spool. The diamond is in 2 sections, so gluing can be tricky.  I glued the bottom to the spool.  LED bulbs (25 watt) last a long time, so I didn’t worry about needing to remove the shade.  By the time the bulb needs to be replaced, so will the paper.

The spool on the second lamp is from an antique store.  I can’t remember where I got the fibrous paper, but it works well with the thread theme.

Some papers can be pretty interesting when lit from behind.  This one surprised me. The base is an antique spool. I attached 3 chair leg protectors to the base to allow the chord to escape.
