Step 1: 

Download the template. If you do not have access to my template, you can simply use two bowls (of various sizes) to trace the half circle outlines.

Step 2: 

Cut out the half moon shape and the circle shape using your scissors.

Step 3: 

Use your markers and get creative decorating your shade. Match the theme for the party or highlight your favorite color.

Step 4: 

Use double sided tape to attach the half circle shape to itself.

Step 5: 

Finish decorating your shade. Use your markers or embellishments to cover up any tape lines.

Step 6: 

Next I used a fancy hole punch and double sided tape to add some extra fun accents. These cut-outs will also create some really amazing shadows when lit.

Step 7: 

Use a wine glass as your lamp shade base. There are plastic glasses available as well.

Step 8: 

Place the lampshade on the wine glass and voila you're done! You're very own fancy miniature glass lampshade holder.

For variations, you can go all out with this craft, just match whatever theme you have going on. For some of them, we decided to create jewelry holders, and attached some clips to the rim of the shade. So whatever your ideas, let them go wild, create a bunch and give them as gifts or holiday presents. You can even create an extra spooky one for the Halloween dinner table.
