A large "foof" light. Made from a round paper lantern with a light, packages of coffee filters and a glue gun. (Notes: Opt to buy the brightest white coffee filters you can. Otherwise, the light cast from this lamp will not be the bright white look your probably going for. Instead, it will almost look a little dingy - trust me! Another option people have used are cupcake liners. Unfortunately, for a project this size they may not work - they may be too small). *Had a thought. If you did want to give the lamp some color - say a romantic light peach - separate the filters and moisten the bottom portion with a spray bottle. Then use something to color the bottom portion of filter. Allow the colorant to gently soak up and toward the top of filter, but not all the way. Leave white toward the top rim, like a 2-tone carnation flower. Let dry and use. Maybe try and use actual water color paints, water soluable crayons, Tim Holtz ink mists, homemade "Cool-Ade" dye or watered down acrylic paint.....
