Thrift stores are great for finding lampshades that you can strip down to the bones.  I used a double black netting as my base and stitched pieces of lace, buttons, beads, yo-yo's and velvet milinery flowers.  Tis all stitched onto the frame except for the top and bottom trims... they were fabric glued.  P.S.  I prefer stitching vs. gluing as the glue can make a shine when the light is turned on.
