Glass Jar Lampshade

Make a lampshade using glass containers and paints.

by craftbits (shellie wilson)

What you need

Glass containers of any size(I have used 2 simple square containers).
glass liner
glass paints

Instructions

First you’ll need to clean and dry the glass containers. Then based on the pattern you like, you can either draw free hand designs with a glass liner on the outside of the glass or can take the help of any templates to draw.

Leave it dry for 45 minutes.

Once dry you can fill in glass colors as per your choice or the design requirement,when the design’s done,leave it to dry for half a day.

NOTE:After coloring, the container should not be moved, as there is the chance the paints may flow out of the liner(design). It should be untouched until dry.

After it’s dry, a small bulb in a holder can be placed inside to use it as a lampshade or try using a battery operated light or small tea-light candle.

I have used 2 containers, placed them one over the other to create a different effect.
