In this tutorial, we learn how to make a lampshade out of plastic cups. First, you will need to purchase clear plastic cups and use a stapler and tape. To start, lay your cups on the ground with the bottoms facing up. Now, take your tape and tape the cups together two at a time, then connect all the cups in a circle. Next, use your stapler to staple the cups together, going two at a time. Start adding more cups around the circle of original cups using the stapler. After you get to two cups wide on both sides, you will be ready to use this as a lampshade!
