So now my glasses could and I'll take some sanding paper that I also purchased at Dollar Tree, and this comes in different grit, the smaller the number. That's on the back of the paper, the more coarse it is, so I start out with an 80, then a 150 and then at 250, and I made sure to sand my edges extremely smooth so that this glass wouldn't cut me or anyone else. Now I go ahead and I decorate my glass with some gems. I start out using hot glue to adhere the gems to the glass.
Now my plan was to use a small paintbrush and I'd epoxy to my gems after I'd already hot glue them, but I found that it was just working better if I would go ahead and use epoxy glue and hot glue both and then attach them to the Candle holder, that way, so that's how I attach the remainder of the gems, and these are on here - really nice and firm. I'M super happy with how well they're glued on once all my gems were glued on. I did go back over and kind of fill around and make sure I didn't have any weak winds or loose ones. That would maybe fall out later, and I did I found about four or five that was a little loose and that was because I'd only used a hot glue on those, so I just reapply them with the epoxy glue and hot glue.
Now I take three dowels which you can find at Dollar Tree, and I paint these white and we'll come back to this in just a moment. I take this four-ounce plastic dipping cup and if you don't have one of these on hand, there are other bowls that will work just make sure whatever you use. The plastic is thick on them and you may have something in your cabinet or fridge that'll work for this. So just kind of look around so I'll. Take my hot knife and I'll melt a hole in the center and I'll make sure I have enough room to run Christmas lights through this hole and once my hole is big enough to run the Christmas lights.
I So I'll lay my lampshade on its side and I feed the Christmas lights through the center and then I connect my bowl in my lampshade together now here you don't have to add a lot of glue. Keep in mind these are Christmas lights and they do last a long time, but you may want to change your lights to a different color. Your strand may go bad, so you want to have easy access to be able to change those lights out. If you want to so, I wouldn't add epoxy right here unless you have super small hands and you can work the lights in and out without having to take the bottom off.
So I also want to give you guys another little bonus tip if, for some reason, your glass wasn't cut perfectly, even you can cut you a little strip off of a foam board and glue it to the side of your bowl to kind of help level. Your lampshade, if you need to do that, and the very last thing that I do - and this is just for extra bling - is I take this role of small bling.
