Looking for a fun, fast and easy way to add charm to your table. Here it is! I promised you that I was going to do some simple and inexpensive DIY projects and that is exactly what this is.
Start with a beautiful sheet of paper. I used Craft Smith paper (Garden Party). I couldn’t find it on Amazon, but here’s a link to several papers that they do have. (affiliate link) DECORATIVE PAPER
I played around with the paper to find the right shape for my glass. Then I used that to cut the paper.
Basically, I then formed a lamp shade over the glass. I added a bead of craft glue where the seams overlap. I used paperclips to hold the seams together while the glue dried. As you can see the tealight goes in the glass.
Then I placed the lampshade on the glass. It reminds me of the lamps they put on a restaurant table for two. As you can see I changed my mind about the actual lamp shade size after I marked them. Be sure to erase any extra pencil lines so they don’t show like they do on mine.
I thought these little candle lamps were so charming. Of course it’s a lit candle so use the normal precautions when there is an open flame.
I used a heavy gold metallic and green paper, but you could use a light color if you needed more light. I tried them in several places in my home. I think they would be so pretty on tables if you were having a dinner party, but they are also nice used about anywhere in your home.
They work well in my dark closet for sure.
