Astar's Craft: Cupcake Paper Light Shade

Good Morning on TV ONE and TVNZ OnDemand.

Cupcake Paper Light Shade

I saw this idea in an old English House and Garden magazine and fell in love with the concept.  It’s a perfect solution should you have a shade in need of replacement or if you want to colour co-ordinate to suit your décor.

Things to gather –

  • Paper lantern in a size to suit
  • Small and large cupcake papers
  • Hot glue gun and sticks
  • Large mixing bowl to hold work during construction.

Method –

  • Assemble paper lantern.  Full instructions can be found in the pack
  • Place into bowl so that it doesn’t roll around
  • Use the hot glue gun to fix small cupcake casing inside larger ones
  • Once all assembled, working in a circle from the top/down, fix casing to exterior of lantern

To finish – fix to existing electric light fitting, then stand back and enjoy your handy work.
