Lampshades - What Holds'em Up?

A circle of acetate was suggested with the comment made that having tabs on the sides of the acetate circle would make it easier to glue to the shade.
These patterns are for cutting the acetate out. They are sized for the blank patterns provided at Jim's Dollhouse pages
Tape them to the acetate and cut out.

Another suggestion was to use an earring finding like this one.

Pat Carlson has a great tutorial on Custom Dolls, Houses and Miniatures, with instructions on how to make a harp, and a curved lampshade.
