Handicraft materials

Corrugated craft paper



Drawing pin

Step 1

Cut the corrugated craft paper into a wide strip (15 x 30cm in the example). Draw Swiss crosses on the back with a ballpoint pen.

Step 2

Now you can decorate your lamp, for example with Swiss crosses. Using the drawing pin, make holes along the edges of the crosses you have drawn. Leave a small space between the holes so that the paper doesn’t tear. 

Step 3

Apply glue to the short edge of the paper and paste it together. You can use a paper clip to hold it in place until the glue has dried.

Step 4

Your table lamp is now ready for you to place a tea light in it. Use a flameless LED tea light so there’s no risk of fire.
