Mini Wine Glass Lamp Shade




Introduction: Mini Wine Glass Lamp Shade

About: I'm a mom of 4 and I love to craft! Anything and Everything interests me and i love to create in the process of learning.

This is a cool mini lamp which could be changed for any occasion...a romantic dinner for 2 ..., wedding table decor..the sky is the limit
It's not messy...not difficult ...and easy to clean up .. this is very important i feel for any party! Ask anyone who has to clean up or
organize a party...they would tell you! :-D

All you have to do is print the template onto paper, velum or tracing paper and you are done! it's that easy :-) have to cut and paste too :-D
I have used Pixlr to make was fun experimenting as it's the first time I have used it.
for those of you who don't want to go through the process of making your own.. you are free to download
my finished lamp shades...decorating your dinner table will be a snap! :-)

Step 1: How to Make the Shades

Please follow the images for details
Open images in Pixlr
Resize the pictures if you feel they are too big
then select the wand and click on the white section of the boogi man
then right click your mouse and click invert selection
then go to edit and click copy
now go to the lampshade template and click on the window and paste.
you should get a big boogie the wand tool again and click on the boogi man and right click and chose free transform then resize and  turn how you want
Once you are happy save the changes...then go to the pinch tool and pinch the eyes how you gives a more mean look :-)
repeat the steps for the remaining 2 faces...
now just print it on an orange paper and paste near the tabs .
The Bats were done the same way but without pinching

Step 2: The Spider Web

For the cob webs I selected the black with the wand and the area that didn't get selected I pressed down shif+ wand tool and selected the one's that didn't come under the selection...
then i did the same and copied and pasted to the lamp shade...
later i took the pencil tool and added the lines to fill up the gaps
now do the same and as in previous steps and add the little spiders where you want
you now have a spider web..lampshade !

I have included a blank lampshade template so you may design it how you would like :-)

Step 3: Assembling

Assembling is pretty easy...print in white paper to determined the size...if you are happy with it...print in colored paper,
cut the shape out and paste with a tape or glue. :-)
