flame-less candle lampshade

How cute is this simple project . . .



I made them for favors at Thanksgiving.
Wouldn't they be a fun little gift for your holiday gatherings?



Supplies: small wineglasses, scrapbook paper, LED tea lights, scissors, and clear tape



Print the template {see below} on a piece of 8.5" by 11" paper.
Trace the shape onto scrapbook paper to create the shade
Cut out the shade
Bend into shape and tape to secure
Put a tea light into a small wine glass
Add the shade and adjust to sit evenly.

Since these shades are paper do not use regular tea light candles



I purchased my tea lights at the Dollar Tree.



After Christmas you could switch out the shades to a winter theme
or get them ready for the next holiday.
