Pleated Vellum Hurricane Shades
Dress up your hurricane lanterns in a hurry with pleated vellum shades to softly illuminate the dinner table.
- Hurricane lanterns
- Colorful vellum
- Scoring board
- Double-sided tape
Use a scoring board to uniformly crease paper: Lay the paper on the board, and use the indentations as your guide to score parallel lines. (Of course, you can fold the paper by hand, using a ruler and bone folder, if you wish.)
Accordion-fold the paper along the lines, wrap it around the lantern, and secure the ends with double-sided tape. We used 1/4-inch, 3/8-inch, and 1/2-inch folds for the shades above, but you can vary them to your liking.
