Wine Glass Tea-Lamps
These little "lamps" are so cute ! I wanted to make some months ago and finally made a few today. We have a bunch of celebrations coming up in November and December.
This could be used at an informal tea-party, or if you choose the correct paper/card and glasses it would even look lovely as part of a formal table setting.
Or scatter them on the sweets or snack tables.
This is all you need to make these pretty Lamp-shades:
Pretty paper/card or even paper doilies
Double sided Tape
A selection of Wine Glasses - different sizes and types looks very nice together
The template which you can find at Good Housekeeping by clicking HERE
Cut out the template - if it is too big - cut some away, following the template's design
Use the double sided tape to close the two ends on the inside
Place a Tea-light candle into each glass
Light the candle (looks lovely even without using candles...)
Top with your "Lamp-shade"
Here are the lamps without the candles being lit:
Just as pretty !!
I tried them in pairs and they all look nice:
I love them ... and with all the pretty paper in the stores now, you can create any theme, or download some from the internet - there are loads of free printables.
You can add Wine Glass Charms, see my post HERE on how to make some the easy way. I did not add any to these but you might want to, depending on the occasion.
Something else you might consider - add a small piece of ribbon round the bottom of the shades or punch in some holes and hang a few small beads.
Hope you enjoyed the post !
