Vellum Lamp Shades

My Granddaughter and I decided to have some fun, the other night, and we made these Halloween Lamp shades.

We bought some wine glasses at our local Dollar Tree and also a package of two battery operated tea lights.

We printed a lamp shade onto Vellum and then cut it out.  Then, we just stamped our images onto the lamp shade using Staz On black ink.  We put it on our little Halloween designed wine glasses....but the image on the glasses was covered up.

This was just a 'trial' run to see how it would go.  So, we decided it would be better on just plain wine glasses with no images or writing.

So, we made another trip to the Dollar Tree, the other day, and got three different sized/shaped/colored wine glasses and are going to play with those soon, using Designer Series Paper.  We want to see if it we like it best with a stamped image on vellum or the designer paper.

It's really looks cute when the lights are turned down.  I only have one template for the lampshades so I may go in search of some more sizes and different ways to use the lamp shades.

Always looking for fun ideas to make!!

Hope you try it!  You can dress up your table for Thanksgiving/Christmas or for any type of dinner.  You can even make them to give away as little 'thank you' gifts.

Have a fantastic day!!!

Don't forget about the 15% off sale that SU is running through October 23rd. Just two more days to save on any stamp in the two catalogs....with the exception of Bundles, Host Stamps and Rotary stamps.
