DIY: Mini Table Lights


Since I finally saw Brittany last night and gave her the gift of light, it’s safe for me to post my latest project! 😉


I always try to make homemade Christmas gifts for my closest friends and family, and this year I found the COOLEST project on Pinterest and decided to give it a whirl. They turned out adorable!!

Now that I’ve made them, I just want to make a million more and put them everywhere. They’re super cute and can even be used at a party to provide light near the snack table (…my favorite part of nearly any party), a cute decoration for your home, or even at a wedding as a centerpiece! These are versatile and there are so many unique looks you can accomplish when crafting them. Just check out these custom candlelight lamps on Pinterest; you can find more detailed instructions and ideas there.


Oh and last but not least– here’s how you make them:
You’ll need…

  • Wine Glasses
  • Scrapbook Paper
  • LED Tealights or Tealight Candles
  • Scissors
  • Double Sided Tape
  • Template Print
  • Pencil

1. Print  and cut out the Template.
2. Outline the template on your scrapbook paper with a pencil and cut out.
3. Use the tape to hold the lampshade together, then tape to the wine glass.
4. Decorate with anything you’d like. I used ribbon and butterfly clips!
5. Light a candle and enjoy the ambiance. 🙂


Thank you for this picture, Brit! They look so neat when they’re all lit up! 😀
