3 non-standard ideas for decorating the house from cardboard and paper

A lamp shade can be made from a variety of items, but the most popular are strings and cords. And what do you say about the lamp from paper and cardboard? Do not think it is boring or difficult. In fact, the process is quite simple, but the result - well, does not correspond to such elementary techniques. Too good.

For all the work you need a very simple set:

  • cardboard;
  • stationery knife;
  • finishing paper;
  • acrylic paint;
  • glue.

So let's get started!

Lampshade number 1— cylinder

We create the basis for the future lamp by gluing together cardboard (you can also buy ready-made bases for lamp shades in the store). From above we decorate a hand-made finishing paper with the patterns and figures cut out in it to taste (we paste to a basis). There is such a shade on the legs of the wire.

Lampshade number 2 - two-layer

We glue the basis of the cylindrical form of cardboard. We draw with a pencil on finishing paper figures and patterns that protrude in size beyond the base of the lampshade. Glue and admire the result.Cardboard and paper glued together in this way will create a three-dimensional composition when the light comes on.

Lampshade № 3 - with decorative inserts

The base is also made of cardboard. However, on top of the paper is pasted differently. First, it should make the selected figures, for example, roses, leaves and other forms. Do not glue the edges so that when the light comes on, an interesting chiaroscuro is created in the room.
