Step 1: Step 1- Bore Hole in Cork Lid

With a sharp tool, bore a hole into the cork lid. It needs to be big enough to fit the whole light socket into it.

Step 2: Decorate Glass Casing

You can use any paints to decorate. I prefer oil paints for their thickness, but acrylic would work well too! I use washi tape to help create the designs.

    That's pretty cool! I would not have thought of using oil paint, but now I do recall a folk art tradition of painting on the backside of glass panes.

    Thanks for sharing your project!
