How to Make a Wine Glass Lamp Shade

To make your own lampshade, pick up some white (or colored) sheets of parchment paper or vellum. You can find vellum at a few different places, but a speciality store like this one might be your best bet. Using this template, trace and cut out the pattern on the vellum or parchment using a pair of scissors. This site has a detailed tutorial for making your own wine glass lampshades.

Wine Glass Lamps

The great thing about these wine glass lamps is that you can easily make your own, or simply buy a few designs if you come across some you like. Experiment with different types of paper (vellum seems to work the best, but can be expensive) and colors to create the perfect ambiance!
