DIY Paper Lamp shade

I am always fascinated by different varieties of candle, candle votives and shades available here, so when I wanted to try one easy candle votive with paper this idea from internet got my mind.

It is very to simple to make with normal things that you find around in home. Do try it and let me know how yours turned out :)

Materials needed:

Cello tape
Flame less candle( LED electric candle )

Step 1
Place a paper above foam pad or any soft mat and start poking holes in a desired pattern. If you find it difficult to get a neat pattern draw the pattern in pencil first and then pierce it . 

Step 2                                                                                         
Using glue or cello tape seal the ends together .

Step 3

Place a flameless candle like this inside the paper shade that we made and keep it in a dark place to see how decorative it looks . You can use normal candle  also but it would not be safe to use paper around fire hence I chose flame less one. If using normal candle use a short candle and place it inside a glass container and then keep it inside the paper lamp shade.  

This is how it looks in the dark.
