Tissue paper lampshade

Susan has seen a few good lantern lampshades around and wanted to make her own. This seems really simple to do but the effect is quite something. Love the glowing coral look.

She says, "I used the basic Ikea Regolit lampshade (just the paper globe) in the medium size ($5), and a package of tissue paper from Target ($1.99).Starting at the bottom, I cut strips of tissue paper into a fringe and just glued around and around till I got to the top! It looks pretty outer-spacey or deep sea. Connecting it to the ceiling fixture in my room was a little challenging, but involved 3 binder clips and some wire - I wanted to make sure it was far enough from the bulb to not catch fire.
