Useing any type of popsicle sticks with wax paper and some construction paper you can easly make a kool personalised candle shade that works perfectly for a night light. This project is very simple.
glue the popcicle sticks in 4 squares touching eachother upon wax paper, this will allow you to fold the paper to make a box. (you can probobly use 3 squares to make a triangle candle shade or use more then 4 squares to make differnt shapes.)
While the glue drys, draw a design for the sides of your shade. i drew a tree but draw anything you want for all 4 sides.
cut the design out of any colored paper you want. then glue your design to the wax paper and let it dry.
Cut the wax paper around the squares leaving extra wax paper at the bottom and at the sides.
cut little slits on the extra wax paper at the bottom. only cut at the meeting of 2 squares.
fold the wax paper into a 3D square. and tape the bottem wax paper strips together like the picture. then tape the extra paper on the sides of the squares together to compleate the square.
place candles or some light source in the middle(i used fake electronic candles because it is less of a fire hazard)and let the light glow through showing off the great designs and you are done :)
