Paper Lampshades and Votive Holder Covers

29 Aug

lampshade and candle holdersThese paper lampshades and votive covers can be made to coordinate with your home décor or as table decorations for any special occasion. I just love the way they soften the glow of the candles.

suppliesMaterials Needed

Glass Lampshade Template

8 1/2 X 11 (scrapbook, wrapping paper, printed digital paper)

Glass votive holders

Stemmed wine glasses

Tea lights, votives or flameless candles (safer around children)

Scissors

Scoring tool

Double sided tape

Paper Lampshades

These shades measure 4” high. If your glasses are longer, try increasing the print size of the template.

Print or trace the template on the back of the paper

Cut out the template, form into a cone and secure with double sided tape.

To keep the tea light in place add some uncooked rice in the bottom of the wine glass and then slightly push the tea light into the rice.

Votive Holder Covers

votive candle coversI scored the back of my decorative paper every 1/4” and then cut long strips slightly wider than the height of the candle holders and accordion folded them.

I wrapped the strips around the holders, trimmed off the excess paper, and secured the ends together with double sided tape.

For a really easy cover, eliminate the scoring and folding and simply wrap the strips around the holders and secure with double sided tape.

Note: Do not leave the candles unattended! To be on the safe side, use flameless candles.
