How to make this silk tassel shade into a ceiling fixture?

I picked this shade made of silk tassels up a year ago with the intention of turning it into a ceiling fixture in our living room.

It would hang in the middle of the room over a foot traffic area, and with a very tall husband I’ll need it to hug the ceiling. Does anyone have suggestions or links to something that would work?

In the shot below you can see it’s structure. One hole in the center and it’s pretty heavy.
