Well, you know to be careful about low wattage and all that, I'm sure. I don't know what kind of plant, but I have an idea...
Green wood is flexible. If you find something bushy/twiggy enough, you can bend and shape the branches. Maybe tie them in place with twist ties or twine while you leave it to dry, and then it should hold its shape.
Or if you find a dead, dry plant that looks suitable, I know people working with dry materials will soak them in water first, to make them pliable. But the green one would probably be best.
It's just a thought-maybe worth a try? Good luck with the lamp!

Thanks, Sugaree! I love all the tips and links. And now I have something to do with my old shirts!
Something else you can do with your old umbrella fabric is making a tote bag. Here's a link to a tute-


Antidigger asked-

What can I make with short bits of kite line (<5yards). For those not in the know, it's braided string of various different weights, very slippery and with no stretch in it. It has a low melting point, but is quite strong for it's width. It's also orange. 

Sorry, no ideas!

What if the ATC's were the frame? Take a decent size piece of art, a photo, fabric, whatever-and cover the frame with ATC's, so the cards surround it. Could look nifty.

Oh, gosh, tons of tutes on Craftster! I've seen ipod holders, glasses case, messenger bags and purses, skirts, and I forget what else.

What can I do with old solid color silk shirts? Don't fit, or a slight stain, or shoulder pads...not great as shirts, but pretty soft silk. I'd like to cut them up and do...something, but don't know what. It doesn't hurt to do that, since they were all of 2.50 at Goodwill! Heck, the ones that are good, I've found I can machine wash them instead of drycleaning. But anyways-ideas?
