Hello and Happy Saturday!!! I was looking for some wine glass designs on Pinterst and came upon this tutorial for a lamp shade!! I thought how fun (I think I am a little ADD - hey look a squirrel!!!).
Where was I? Oh yeah Pinterest. Here is a link to the tutorial that I found. It has a template you can print off too! LINK
Instead of paper, I used a sheet of Rowlux purple film. This plastic film is a bit transparent and very easy to work with. I printed out the template (above) and cut it out. Note - next time I will print it off onto cardstock paper!!!
I used a pencil to trace the template. Some parts of the Rowlux sheet were a little wavy so my line was not drawn perfectly, but I thought it was better than the Sharpie I first grabbed!
I rolled up the lamp shade and used this Quick Grip permanent adhesive from Beacon. I have to be honest here - I was skeptical! I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly it stuck! I was afraid I would be left holding the lamp shade for a while - it only took maybe 90 seconds.
Here is the seam. I did squeeze a bit too much at the top, but the adhesive dries clear!
I grabbed a 15 ounce wine glass and put a battery operated tea light inside.
I set the lamp shade on top - you can see the light!!
I added some pearl trim from Recollections from my stash.
This dainty lamp will look great in my living room!!
