Many of you put on a fundraising dinner or event banquet and when you do you’re looking to create an environment that is nice but affordable. That’s why I had to share this idea with you from CasaSugar.

Grab a few wine style glasses, print out the template lampshade pdf on vellum paper, cut, add a led battery operated tea light and voila. I don’t care what you say about my DIY side… I like stuff like this. Enjoy.

From the CasaSugar blog post…


8-1/2″ x 11″ sheets of vellum (one per lamp)
Decorative bladed scissors
Decorative paper punch
Glue pen
Wine glasses
Tealights or a LED battery-operated tealight
Candle putty (floral clay)
Here’s how, from Save On Crafts:

Download and print out this lampshade pattern.
-Trace the pattern onto your vellum sheet. Cut out the shape with your regular scissors. If you want, you can use decorative bladed scissors along the bottom edge to add another element to the shade.
-If you like, use a paper punch to punch holes evenly or haphazardly throughout the shade, as shown in the PDF.
-Using the glue pen, apply a thin line of glue to one straight end. Wrap the other end over the glued end, and adhere together, forming the shade.
-Secure the tealight with the candle putty, and set the lampshade on top of your glass.
