Halloween Wine Glass Lampshade – Print and Cut

Okay, it can go on something other than a wine glass, but I seem to have a few of those sitting around and I love the look!  For this project I used Perfect Paper (made from rocks!) that is heat resistant so I don’t burn up the house – yes there is a scar on my craft table from a candle left to burn and then forgotten.  I really did need it to get rid of some smell and then forgot to blow it out.  Anyway, my project is for Halloween of course, and I ended up using my scraps for a second method – two for the price of one.

Step 1:  Create your votive outline and arrange your objects on the layout as desired.


Step 2:  Print the page, using registration marks (you can see them if you look really close).

Step 3:  Place the printed paper in your super fabulous KNK, align the registration marks, and then cut out the selected objects and the outline.  Using a transparent  adhesive, create your cone.


From there, I had these wonderful little ghost cut outs to which I applied repositionable adhesive.  I arranged them on the second wine glass.  When cutting the second shade, I removed the ghosts and rearranged the bats before printing and cutting.  This gave the second shade an eerie and wonderfully different look from the first votive shade.


Which one do you prefer?

  1. I like the second one they look like they are really flying. So cool but my glass is never empty! Guess I will have to by more glasses.

    • Go to Dollar Tree and buy all types of glasses, even wine, for a buck each! Then you can etch etc. anything you want..they make great/cheap/but impressive looking gifts for weddings, anniversaries etc.! I’ve done tiny little mirrors for my grand piglets (etched that is), and a candle holder…one of those tiny ones that hold the small almost votive type candles…for a friend of mine..Etched her first name on one side, and a Rose on the other…as that is her last name and she’s an artist … and that’s how she signs what she paints 🙂

  2. I really like them both, but I REALLY like the second one, the most. The ghosts have this neat “shadow” affect that just looks very authentic 😛 Don’t be surprised if you get a visit from the ghost hunters 😀

  3. Same here… love the second one and love the entire idea of doing this! I bought some battery-operated candles and this will be a fairly quick project to make. Thanks for a terrific Halloween decorating idea, Michele!

    • OH Sandy, I wouldn’t have thought of battery operated candles! That would help prevent me from burning down my house! LOL himself almost burnt the bathroom down once with a candle…no power..he had to go to work so had to shave, so he set a lit candle on a PLASTIC towel shelf thingie..burnt a hole in the shelf above the candle lol! He learned fast on that one!

  4. what a wonderful idea. Great to use for so many occasions and parties, just vary the theme.

  5. How did I miss this project!?!! What a neat idea!
    I love the instructions…”Step 3: Place the printed paper in your super fabulous KNK”…INDEED! I love that we can make awesome projects like this with our KNK’s!
    TFS 🙂

  6. Michelle, I love both of them, but do think I prefer the 2nd one..but would love both, together, as a “matching” type “set. Hmmm…makes me wonder about Christmas..the candle thingies they use on walkways..in a “sack”…wonder what one could do with that? VEG
