This is a way to create an easy and fun, magic lampshade customized by you!
Total Time: approximately 10 minutes
- white lampshade
- black Sharpie pen
- Take a white lampshade and draw anything you want inside with a black Sharpie pen. You can look on the internet or books for ideas. Shadow puppet images are helpful.
- I chose Mary Poppins. I drew it free hand in case sketching would be visible. As a result I don't know if sketches will show.
- This is how the lampshade looks after the drawing. You can barely see it right?
- Turn the light on and, voila, surprise! There you are - Mary Poppins.
Entertain your friends and family, or just sit back and enjoy your creation. :)
