I'd like my floor lamps to be more attractive than lightbulbs lying on the floor.

Help me turn a blindingly bright LED tube into a functional and decorative floor lamp!

I have two LED tubes (that look vaguely like these
, are about three feet long, and have a couple feet of power cord at one end). I would love to turn these into floor lamps. They're pretty blinding on their own, so some sort of lamp shade is in order. So, my questions...
1) What kind of lamp shade should I use for these? I'm happy to buy one (preferably on the cheap) or make one, but it needs to cover the whole tube.
2) What can I use for a base to get the tubes to stand upright on the floor?
