You'll also need
Pencil; compass (or lids and jars); scissors; paintbrush; ribbon in 3 to 4 complementary colours; heavy-gauge fishing line; self-adhesive hooks in white or clear
Using pencil, mark circles on cardboard with compass or different-sized lids and jars. Our circles ranged from 30-100mm diameter and we used 20-40 circles on each paper shade.
Use scissors to cut out cardboard circles.
Using main picture as a guide, paste back of first circle with Mod Podge and stick in position on shade. Once circle is positioned, apply more Mod Podge to cover face and edge of circle and paste it down to shade.
Continue pasting circles to shade. Aim for a concentration of circles at the top and a light spread of circles cascading down each side of shade. You may wish to overlap circles here and there. Set aside paper shades to dry.
To make a tassel, cut six 30cm lengths of ribbon in assorted colours. With all lengths together, fold in half and tie at fold with a short length of ribbon to make a loop. Thread another piece of ribbon through the loop and tie it to the metal rail at open base of shade.
With power off, and using a step ladder, fit 1 shade to a pendant fitting. To hang the other 3 shades, fit hooks to the ceiling and hang shades using fishing line.
