Make Some Halloween Lamps Using Wine Glasses 23

Make Some Halloween Lamps Using Wine Glasses

I thought it would be fun to make some Halloween table decor this year.  I wanted something pretty easy, with things that I already had.  I saw some “shades” at the dollar store and figured that it would be easy to make my own.  Then, you can just decorate them however you wish to display around your home.

I wish that I had some opaque black paper, it would have been a bit easier to see the candlelight through it.  This craft paper worked fine with the light coming out from the top and bottom, so I guess it was all okay.  Like I sad, you could add whatever you wanted to this, and even use the idea for other holidays.  It was so easy to make with my Cricut Explore, and looks great displayed in our home.

I hope you like it!! Have a blessed day, and please be sure to comment on, and share this craft on your social media channels – thanks!!


Make Some Halloween Lamps Using Wine Glasses

Materials/Tools Used:

  • Wine Glass
  • Craft Paper
  • Cricut
  • Adhesive Roller
  • & Time!


I started by cutting out this template, that I found online, with my Cricut, to use as the lamp shade.  The size you make it, will depend on the size of the glass, how much you want covered, etc.lamps

After it was cut out, I put the tabs into the opening on the other side.  You might want to add a bit of tape on the inside to hold it all together, if it seems to want to come apart.


I then used the Cricut again to cut out a spider web.  I had to be really careful taking it off of the cutting mat, so that I didn’t tear any of the pieces.


After that, I used my adhesive roller and added some to the back of the web.


I also cut out some very thin pieces of the white craft paper for the web extension.


After they were finished, I attached both to the lamp shade.


After that, I cut out a spider shape from my Cricut.  I used the scraper to get it off without tearing any of the small legs.


After that, I inserted a battery operated candle into the wine glass.


Now, you just turn the candle on, put the shades over the glasses and enjoy!


I hope you like it!  Please take a minute to leave me a comment, and let me know what you would do different, or what you would add, etc.  Be sure to tweet, pin, share, etc. – thank you!!

I have a glass flower vase which I used only once and now I got an idea to use it as a lamp shade. I can fill them with pebbles or marble and then put the candle and lamp shade. Thanks for sharing this nifty idea, Jamie.Love it. #HomeMattersParty

I have oodles of seasonal stickers that I could decorate lamp shades with (which is good because I don’t have a cricut!). I could just change out the shades for each season. #HomeMattersParty

What a cool way to use glasses. This could work for other themes too.
