Wine Glass Lamp Shade

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!!
