What on earth is a “wine glass light”? Only the cutest way to dress up a table, serve as an elegant version of night light or to serve as a super cute gift. And the best part? They are easy to make, use things you probably already have on hand and you can raid the dollar store for the glasses and tea lights making this one of those don’t-tell-anyone inexpensive but oh-so-gorgeous gifts.
I downloaded this template from Splitcoaststampers and used it to cut my vellum. I used deckle scissors to cut around the bottom of the shade to give a more natural look.
I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Moose cabin and trees images to create my scene. I stamped the trees all the way around the shade using olive pigment ink, leaving a space open to stamp the cabin, and embossed with clear embossing powder. When stamping the tree images I had to keep turning the shade template slightly and keep the trees in line following the curve of the shade. If not the tree line would have been crooked. I masked the trees on both side of the opening for the cabin and then stamped the cabin with brown pigment ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I lightly painted the cabin with lighter brown pigment ink and the windows with yellow pigment ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I painted a thin layer of white pigment ink on the roof of the cabin and along the ground area and embossed with white embossing powder. The final step was to create the falling snow using a tiny brush and dotting the sky area white pigment ink and embossing with white embossing powder. I finished the with the green ribbon and multi loop bow. I don’t know if you can tell or not but I am in love with the Moose set. The small trees are perfect for smaller scenes like this and they coordinate with the tree in the 3 Pine Tree set.
I hope you enjoyed seeing this wine glass light. I am very sorry that you received a second email today. I accidentally published my post while I was working on this instead of saving it. I’ll be back tomorrow with a fun new Christmas card idea.
