There are many different types of materials that are now being used for the replacement lamp shade so you may want to take a close look at those as well. The more options you have and the more you look at, the better your decision on a replacement lamp shade will be. Just keep an open mind and see what you can come up with for your lamp.
There are also different techniques for making the antler lamps themselves. Some lamp makers use glue to hold the antlers together. Others may fasten them together with rawhide thong for a rustic Indian look. And some of the most attractive antler lamps may include a combination of being glued, drilled and screwed together, with the holes sealed for a natural look. Better quality lamps will almost always include rawhide lamp shades.
In Jackson Hole, WY the town's square is decorated with arches made from Elk antlers. It is certainly unique, and you can create the same look with antler lamps. Small lamps are made from whitetail deer antlers while large light fixtures such as chandeliers may have tiers of elk antlers with rawhide lampshades. One of the most popular lamps is created using moose antlers, unmistakable with their great dark palms and beautiful dark rawhide lamp shades.
Take 3 hanger pieces which have been put to the same measurement. Taking a separate hanger bend it to the shape of a small circular, large enough to rest on the bulb rim. You can attach these by using thick wire and then attach it to the lower rim. Then place it on the blub rim. Make sure it is properly balanced. Now take the mica sheets and drill small holes in the corners each sheets (4 holes). Taking 3 inch sections of craft wire attach the mica to the rims, both up and down. Check if it is firmly placed. And now you have your very own home made mica lamp shade. You can use stencils and paint on your lampshade to add a little bit of color if you desire.
