Drum Shade Chandelier

I like the look of the big drum shades used as chandeliers over a dining table, but don't have much money and actually haven't seen any in stores. Couldn't a regular table lamp drum shade be modified to hang as a pendant/chandelier?

Just an idea - but you could sew decorative chain to the shade in three strands and use that to hold it up. That's more or less how a friend hung up an antique milk shade I got as a present. You can buy the chain at the hardware store.

They are pretty much the same thing, you might want to add a diffuser (some non-clear plastic) to the bottom of it though.
