Find centre of the arms piece and sew it onto the lampstand as arms.

Find a good spot of situate the lampshade hat, and stitch in place on top of bulb. Stitch this more from the centre of the hat, rather than the edges in order to have the edges extend like a lamp shade.

cut out two small circles of yellow felt and a stylized “6” sort of shape (refer to picture) out of light blue for the mouth of Lampent. Glue or sew in place on the face.
