With a deceased birch tree – you can create a very unique source of light. Cut a piece of birch bark to a desired size, and using a leather punch cut holes on each end of the lampshade. Then stitch the ends together with twine. Wire the lamp with a really long piece of 14 gauge lamp wire, outfitted with 60 watt incandescent bulb. Then tie the birch bark lampshade to a pendant wire with the light bulb suspended in the middle. Voila!
