Welcome to InKing Royalty’s October Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around SPOOKY. With Halloween just around the corner, we are excited to share our spooky, fun projects with our neighbors, coworkers and family – and we’re very excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
My ‘Spooky’ project for today features the Wonderfully Wicked Bundle. So let’s get started creating a wineglass lampshade for a ‘Spooky’ glow in your home decor.
GATHER UP THIS STUFF (Supplies and Links are at the end)
- Wonderfully Wicked Bundle (stamp set and dies)
- Vellum: 8-1/2″ x 11″
- Silver Metallic Thread and Glue Dots
- Basic Black Cardstock scrap
- Versamark Pad, Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder
- Embossing Buddy and Heat Tool
- Wine glass and battery operated votive or tealight
- Craft Blade (I use PenBlade Retractable #11)
- Pencil and Paper Snips
- Wineglass Lampshade Template
- Trace the Wineglass Lampshade Template on Vellum. Be sure to include the tabs.
- Stamp the web on the Vellum that has been rubbed with an Embossing Buddy. Cover stamped images with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove excess and set with a Heat Tool.
- Repeat until you have a design that is pleasing to you!
- Cut out the lampshade, erase pencil lines and use a craft blade to cut the tab slits so that the tabs slip into the slit and ‘lock’.
- While the lampshade is flat, wrap Silver Metallic Thread around from top to bottom using a glue dot to secure on the backside of a ‘web’.
- Die-cut 13 (this is the magically spooky number) spiders from Basic Black cardstock and adhere to the front of the lampshade with glue dots.
- Form lampshade and put on a candlelit wineglass.

Love your wineglass shade and can’t wait to give it a try. It’ll make a great little gift for friends!
I am so glad you like the wineglass shade. I am sure your friends will love this little gift from you.
This is an amazing project! The template can be used for all occasions, so cool.
Glad you like it. The template has 2 sizes too.
What a FABULOUS idea! So creative and special!
Aww shucks…Thank you Robin.
Love! This technique is perfect and can be used for all kinds of themes! I’m specifically thinking about an upcoming family mini-baby shower for a second baby. Thanks for sharing!!
Baby Shower decor – Lovely. And yes, the vellum wineglass lampshade definitely crosses over into all seasons and events. Thank you for your kind words.
Thank you! I hope you give it a try and post your project.
So great once again!
You are always so kind. It sure took me awhile to figure out how to close the lampshade. LOL
Really unique, I love it. Such a great idea.
Thank you for your kind words. I try to think a little outside the box.
What a sensational creation!!! I love your fun, seasonal lampshade – I would have never thought of this. Thanks so much for sharing! Kelly x PS, I love the inclusion of 13 spiders!!!
I am humbled. Thank you for your words of encouragement.
I love this lamp shade. I have not seen this before, and I want to try it. Thanks for the instructions, and for introducing me to this cute project.
I would love to see your lampshade creation. The possibilities are endless. Glad you are ready to make one too!
I’m 100% in love with this idea and how you executed it. Such a great project, Ann, with such detail explanations for how you completed it. LOVE!
Thank you! The lampshade was so much fun to make. And as a bonus, it stores flat for next year’s decorations.
Thank you! I appreciate you hopping over to look.
Wow! This is a fantastic idea! So creative and perfect for Halloween. You hit this one out of the park.
Thanks! You should make lots. They fold flat when not in use. BONUS! lol
This is a wickedly spooktacular idea! Love it! Thank you for the inspiration!
Thank you for your spooktacluar words – lol! Add the lampshade to one of your class projects. It is sure to be a hit.
This is such a great project. I haven’t thought of these in quite a while. You really made this was shine!
Sometimes bringing back an ‘old’ idea and tweaking it to make it better (with tabs) is fun. Thank you for hopping in to see it.
Oh my gosh. Adorable. Could be used for so many different holidays.
Thank you Lynn. The template is ready for your creative vision.
