Is it safe to cover a floor lamp, with an Aluminum metal pie plate?


Please see the image below. I'm trying to convert my IKEA NYFORS floor lamp into a reading light, by covering the top with an Aluminium pie plate.

Will this be a fire or electrical hazard? Does anyone foresee any dangers or risks?

As I have 3 of these floor lamps in my attic, I don't want to waste money buying a reading light. I'm unemployed because of COVID.

heat from the old incandescent light bulb might be a problem depending on what the lamp shade is made of

I would not leave it unattended, and I would check to see whether or not the pan gets warmer.
