DIY: Wine Glass Candle Lamps


Everyone can agree that candlelight can definitely set the right mood either you are preparing a romantic dinner with your loved one ore just want to sped a quiet evening with friends. But candlelight shining through transparent paper can have an even higher impact. We will show you how to make candle lamps out of wine glasses which are very affordable. You can place these on tables and create a unique and intimate atmosphere or even put them on a mirror to make the candlelight seem more shiny. The perfect choice of wine glasses would be the lighter colored ones such as white or beige, as they will let more light to shine out.


So here is how to create these by yourself.

You will need:

  • 22cm x 28 cm sheets of vellum / lamp,
  • scissors,
  • decorative bladed scissors,
  • decorative paper punch,
  • glue pen,
  • wine glass,
  • a tealight and floral clay

Now the first thing is to acces this website and download the pattern for your lamp. Then just trace this pattern onto the vellum and cut it out using the scissors and the decorative bladed scissors. Now on the lower edge of the vellum you can punch evenly spaced designs. Then with your glue pen, apply a thin line of glue on one end, then place the other end over this one and glue the shade together. Secure the candle and put the lampshade on top of the wine glass. And that is all, it look great doesn’t it?

    First of all, the pdf pattern that you are to cut looks nothing like the pattern you show on your page. Also, the pattern does NOT fit over a wine glass. It is too small. Any advice???

      Have you tried blowing up the pattern. depending on how much more pattern you need, start at 125%, If still to small, blow up to 150%, etc. until you get the size you need. after all the pattern is made of paper. NO Brainer.

    If you use a battery operated tea light there should be little to no heat at all also less chance of a fire if the glass should be knocked over by an overly anxious party guest.
