    I saw this and it is a really cute and inexpensive idea...

    Click the image to open in full size.

    Made out of fragile parchment, each set contains 3 different shades with cute and whimsical designs that are printed in a faint white. All you need to do is take them out of the package roll them up, drop a candle into a wine glass and add the lampshade. That’s it. Instantly the white pattern is transformed to a darker shade (as if it were a shadow) and a wine glass is turned into a sweet miniature lamp.

    Save-on-Crafts has a great instructions on how to make your very own Wine Glass Candle Lamp

    8-1/2″ x 11″ (21.8cm x 28cm) sheets of vellum (one per lamp)
    Scissors with decorative blades
    Decorative paper punch in desired shape
    Glue pen
    Votive candle or a LED Battery Operated Tea Light
    Candle putty (floral clay)

    2. Trace the lampshade pattern onto the sheet of vellum. Cut the straight ends and the inner curve using plain scissors with decorative blades.

    2. Punch designs about 1″ (2.5 cm) from the lower edge, spacing the designs evenly.

    3. Apply a thin line of glue (a glue pen works well for this) to one straight end. Lap the other end over the glued end, forming the shade.

    4. Secure the votive candle and set the lampshade atop a wine glass
