Hey Krazies - boy do I have a treat for you today! I made wine glass candle's! They are so easy it's scary!
The first one was actually step by step instructions from a Stamp of the Month Club I belong to. The rest are all my own. Just imagine what you can do with these! Themes to match rooms, nursery, kitchen, etc.
First I traced the template onto Vellum You can use this once on 8.5 x 11, or twice on 12x12. I then stamped the leaves randomly on the vellum and let it dry. Then I masked (first time ever masking yay me!) the lil thingies all over. Then I made the band around the middle with coordinating paper. Tied a ribbon around, made the tiny bow with a fork (if you don't know this trick, just google bow with fork) super easy stuff. Oh and when I tied the ribbon around the shade I actually slipped that "Faith" charm through it. I then put a battery operated tea light (8 dollars at Michaels for a dozen of them using coupon) and it was done.
After that I looked all through my papers for any fun vellum paper I had on hand and found quite a bit (surprise surprise) so I made these a little while ago.
Click on this photo <<----- until it you have it larger. Then right click and save it. Print it out (use cardstock if you can) and this will be your template. You can then put a sheet of vellum right over top and trace it. Be sure if you have pattern vellum that you trace in pencil and on the BACK side. Carefully cut it out. I used my glue gun to go down the 3.5 inch side and overlapped the other side to it. There you have it - a lamp shade! Decorate however you want and put the lite inside and you are done. I highly recommend you use the battery operated lamps - NOT real candles as the lampshade is higher than the wine glass (you can see it in the yellow one above)
When you are done - PLEASE send me a photo - I'd love to see your creations!
Enjoy your day!
Hugs and Chirps!
