Wineglass lampshades (& free printables!)

Hi everyone,

I know I’ve been MIA for a while, but been busy busy! I’ve completed quite a few crafts, been oil painting like crazy and even got stuck into tidying up my (very messy) studio.

I recently discovered gorgeous wineglass lampshades in a local magazine. They are super easy to make and so cute when made up. They really add something so cute to a dinner table!

Three Printable wineglass lampshades!

Instructions :

  1. Print out onto light-weight cardstock
  2. Cut out
  3. Glue the sides together to make the lampshade shape – make adjustments as you need to fit your wineglass.
  4. Now grab that glue gun and some trim (from a haberdashery store) and add a trim on the top and the bottom. Alternatively you can cut the edges with deckle (shaped) scissors just to zhoosh it up a bit. Personally, I find the trim just makes them look that little bit more professional.
  5. Now place a tea light candle into the wineglass and pop your shade on top!

Remember- you can add flowers (silk ones, crochet ones etc), beads, felt shapes, well just let your imagination run wild!!

Now off you go – make some of your own!

Oh, and do leave a comment! I would LOVE to hear from you and in return visit your blog!
