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
Tea-light candles
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 !

Bye-bye now,
