      DIY: Lampshades with Clear - Throw Away Party Cups I found this on Pinterest - The link to the blog is at the bottom of this post. enjoy :) I was on a training course a while ago. There were the traditional mineral water in plastic cups, or yes, everyone else took them for mugs but I immediately saw that it was actually small lampshades. In the true spirit of recycling and the risk of sounding a little crazy, I took care of most use bags, took them home and washed out of them. Today I did about all the small lamp shades using fabric glue. Plot of the cup by rolling it over a piece of paper and draw along the top and bottom. Cut pieces of fabric from the template. I had 16 cups and thus cut out 16 pieces of fabric. Glue the piece of cloth are around the cups. I used decoupage. Cut / rock since a cross in the bottom of the cup / lamp shades on a light string. Enjoy :)
