This was an eassy project that anyone can do, but it did require a little time. I started by buying plastic dixie cups. I deconstructed one cup to get my pattern by cutting it from top to bottom and then cutting the bottom completely off. Laid it flat (would work eassier with paper cups). The plastic didn’t want to lay flat but I did the best I could and traced it onto a piece of cardboard to get my template. Then I cut scrapbook paper (light weight that would let light shine through) into the right shape. Wrapped it around the cup and secured with double sided tape.
I cut an X on the bottom of each one and pushed the bulb through.
We used them to light our beer tent.
