Having been using this for a series of shots over the last few days, I thought I would share how it is made.

At the heart of it is a standard lamp fitting. Here I have used a bayonet mount fitting, but a screw mount will work the same way.

The most difficult part is cutting the circle in the lid of the Pringles tube. I'm lucky, I have a compass cutter which is ancient, I've had it since I was at school, which was a long time ago :)

Dont worry, its not that difficult to cut the soft plastic with a sharp craft knife and if you cant find anything suitable to cut around, find a coin that is slightly smaller, then trim it bit by bit until it will fit over the thread of your lamp fitting.
