Making Frugal Lampshades

How do you make frugal lampshades or recover them? I have an old one I would like to recover but the bottom ring has come off can I still use it. If so how or what would I use as a bottom ring I have fabric and a string of sequins glue craft paper and little dolls (to glue on the base).

If there is no bottom ring, use a very firm paper or malleable metal for the shade.

You can find metal sheets at hobby shops that have models to make or trains.
