Scented Wine Glass Lamps

Scented Wine Glass Lamps

I have to say, I really enjoyed making these; my craft room smelled FANTASTIC!!!  These faux lamps are made with a wine glass filled with potpourri and topped with a handmade paper lampshade.

The lampshade svg file is called “Swirl Pattern Wine Glass lampshades” which was purchased on Etsy from a shop called MySVGHUT and was cut with my Silhouette.  I cut the shades from patterned paper, but the original file has a swirl pattern on it that is meant to be printed or foiled.  I also made my shades a bit bigger than the original design to better fit the glasses I was using.

The paper is from the Harvest collection by Reminisce.  The patterns I used are Autumn’s Ebb and Shades of Autumn.  I used a few foam dot squares to hold the shade in place on the glass.

I bought the wine glasses at Dollar Tree.  The potpourri is from Patricia of Mullica Hill in Haddonfield, NJ.  The scent I used for these autumn lamps is Apple Jack.  I plan to make a few Christmas lamps when their Christmas scents are available!

My original thought was to place a battery operated tea light in the glass to make accent lamps. However, the lights I had were a little too dim, and it was hard to see the light through the shade. (Believe it or not, it actually looks better in the photo below than it did in real life!)   If I knew I would be ditching the light idea, I might have used card stock to make the shades sturdier.  I plan to look for brighter, warm-colored lights to try later.

I think this would make a cute hostess gift to take when going to someone’s house for Thanksgiving dinner.

Thanks for checking out my project post!
