Christmas Glass Painting Project Simple Lamp.

This is a great and inexpensive Christmas Glass Painting project. These simple lamps can only be used with the battery night lights. I hope that would be obvious as they are made of acetate and cardboard but it never hurts to stress the fact.

We’ve made these as Christmas lamps and have the designs available as free downloads on the site. You can however use any design you like so we have also given you a blank template to help you construct your own.

Christmas Glass Painting Project: Simple Lamp.

  1. Place the design under the acetate.
  2. Outline the design (the sides are outlined straight down. Don’t outline the tabs).
  3. Leave to dry then cut out.
  4. Paint your design.
  5. Fold back the tabs.
  6. Make you backing out of a 10cm x 10cm square of the metallic board. Cut 4 slots as shown by the template.
  7. Feed the tabs through the slots from the front and tape on the back.

This is quite a simple project and should be suitable for both beginners and more experienced glass painters (depending on the design used).

Summery.

Most of our glass painting projects can be designed as Christmas decorations. Likewise most of our Christmas projects can be altered to make them suitable for other times of the year. Whichever design(s) you chose we hope you enjoy the project. Why not share some of your work on our Facebook group and let others see what you have done!

 

Happy Crafting.
