Create Paperweights from Light Fixture

It sounds crazy but you can turn a light fixture into beveled glass paperweights. I heard about this a while ago and finally found my gem ($3 light fixture) at Goodwill last week.  I was intimidated to remove the glass but that was actually very easy.  


 The top brass balls unscrewed and the glass pieces just slid out from the fixture. 



 After you have removed your beveled glass, select how you would like to design your paperweights.  I played with using notecards (I liked the pattern) and some extra photos.  You could also print out labels "file", "to do" etc. if you wish to make them more practical. 

Trace over your paper and then spray the right side with spray adhesive. Place under your glass and you are done. It will dry in a matter of minutes.


It is optional to add felt to the bottom.  I didn't on mine, they are flat and smooth enough for my desk. 

I love projects that cost less than $5. This is a great gift idea now wedding season, mother's day or even just a nice gift for yourself. I reward myself with gifts on a regular basis.

Bacκlіnking IS important - but it's not everything. So put plenty of relevant keywords into the tag and include the search term once at the front, and a second time further along the line. By sending out a tweet every time you publish a blog you have the potential of widening your blog's геаdership.
