drawing a half circle

Lets begin by drawing a half circle with extended leg on a cardboard sheet using a black marker. Since we are drawing the base of the sconce, the size of half circle with extended leg should match the total measurement of the sconce so remember to draw the sconce according to the size you want.

stick newspaper strips

Now lets stick newspaper strips all over the cropped cardboard so as to cover the back portion of the Wall sconce.

glue two layers

Similarly lets cut out base layer of the sconce and glue two layers for extra strength.

Glue newspaper strips on the base layer

Glue newspaper strips on the base layer as well. Width of the base and back of the sconce should be equal.

joined edges using paper masking tape

Using pins lets attach the base piece of the sconce to the back piece and cover the joined edges using paper masking tape.

lead wires

Now lets make the support for the wall sconce base using lead wires. For that, take a folded lead wire of 20 cm in length.

Roll Paper masking tape over the lead wire then bend them into a curly S-shape and fix it via paper masking tape in between the back and base of the wall sconce .
