Hurricane Lamps ...

These beautiful hurricane lamps are made of paper...with tea light candles inside them. Make as many as you want and put them around in groups...the effect of the candle light is enough to set you in the mood to celebrate.
For this craft project you'll need... gateway paper,it is stiff and stands well (you'll find it at all big stationary strores that stock up for architectural students ... paper punch (christmas themed design)
...glue stick
...scissors
How to ...Cut the paper into different sizes you'd like (rectangles or squares)... punch one side of the sheet with the design you decide on (I found these beautiful double star design punch)...this side goes up(not down because then your candle will show through)...overlap the two sides of the sheet and stick them with the glue stick. You've madeyourself a beautiful hurricane lamp... put it over a tealight candle.
