these lamps all look great. I just had 2 ideas while reading the thread. The first is that you could use something like fimo or play dough in little balls on the ends of the sticks inside the lamp. i'm pretty sure that if the light bulb doesn't get hot tnought to burn the paper of the lamp, it won't melt fimo. Just a thought. Also, I'm 90% certain that orientaltrading.com has party lamps in bulk for very cheap.

I only used scotch tape to affix them to the inside. Just easiest way I could think of I guess!

Ah, that makes sense--so the umbrellas aren't glued down at all.  Thanks!

Like Ju7ia said, I was going to suggest little balls of clay to hold it down.  It probably wouldn't take much, and you could probably get it pretty close to the surface of the latern.  Also, styrofoam peanuts (packing peanuts/packing noodles) might work, so long as they don't catch fire! Tongue

I saw this on Martha Stewart also. The biggest time saving tip to give is to get the shades that are pre-adhesive. Sticky paper already on them. I saw them at Walmart in the craft department. Especially for night lights too. That way you only have to worry about glueing where the umbrellas overlap. I wouldn't worry about the heat that much if maybe you switched to a slightly lower wat bulb.
