Pretty Table for Mother!


Happy Monday!

I have a fun, super simple project to share with you today!  A wine glass 'lamp shade'!

Use it to add a little interest to your Mother's Day brunch table setting, simply add a tealight.

Easy peasy...

  • double-sided scrapbook paper
  • template
  • wine glass
  • strong adhesive (tape or glue)
  • embellishments, if you wish
This is so easy, you could have the kids create them for the dinner table tonight, while you're cooking!

Other ideas -
  • Baby Shower - fill w/pink or blue candies.
  • Wedding - fill with tealight, candies, flowers; add a little tag "Thank you from the new Mr & Mrs".
  • Dress up your wine glass for an overall table theme, simply remove shade before the wine is poured!  lol
  • Depending on the paper & 'fillers' you add,  you could adapt this for any theme or holiday!
  • You could also use your stamps to create your own designer paper like Andrea did here with Verve Stamps.
You're only limited by your own imagination!  Have fun!
    This is a Good Housekeeping craft.  Find more fun & easy crafts here!
