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”
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.
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.
