Paper light tutorial


Now that it is finally cooler, I am much more enthusiastic again about little crafty projects.


Yesterday, I made this paper light. It gives beautiful light when you put a candle (in a glass) inside, and it is really easy
to make.




You will need:

Wallpaper paste
Some wood glue
Cling wrap
Tissue paper
a bowl and scissors


Mix the wallpaper paste according to the instructions and then add some wood glue (the white stuff in the picture).
Mix it and let it stand for about 15 minutes:



In the meantime, find a nicely shaped bowl and cover it in cling film, then cut the tissue paper into stripes.
I put the glue directly onto the clingfilm, and then put the tissue paper stripes on. After a layer of stripes, put more glue on.
Make three to four layers, then let dry:

 

 
 

When the outside is dried, take the light off the bowl, and carefully pull the cling wrap off. Then let the inside dry too,
and enjoy!




Have a wonderful weekend dear friends,



Lots of love,

  2. Oh wow, Jutta!
    Das Licht sieht zauberhaft aus.
    Besonders im Kontrast mit dem Holz.
    Danke, für die Anleitung.
    Ich kann mir bildlich vorstellen, wie ihr bei Abenddämmerung draußen mit dem Licht bei lauen Temperaturen sitzt.
    Hach..
    Liebste Grüße!

    1. Dankeschön liebe Marie :-). Mit den lauen Temperaturen ist es leider schon fast vorbei. Tagsüber ist es noch schön warm, aber morgens und abends wird's schon richtig frisch.
      Alles Liebe nach Berlin

  5. Hallo Jutta,
    das Licht ist wunderschön, es sieht so leicht aus, also ob es davonfliegen könnte.
    Lieben Gruß von Sabine

  6. It's so pretty and delicate! I love the things that look so complicated but are actually so easy to make. This would be perfect for spring decorating...I just need the snow to go away first!
