I love the look of the Febreeze LED luminairies, but I've never been too hot on the patterns or scents available. I decided to do a makeover sans the scent.
What you'll need:
1. A Febreze Flameless Luminary Kit
2. Some sort of semi-transparent paper (I used inkjet ready vellum from a big box office store)
3. A ruler and something to cut with
4. Double sided tape or an adhesive applicator (like scrappers use).
Step 1: Unpack your Febreze Luminary Kit and open one of the scented shades. You're going to be touching the shade a bit, so use gloves if you don't want your hands to smell.
Step 2: Trace/measure onto your chosen paper the shape needed to create your new shade, or print the template on my website http://chokecherryfarms.com/node/36
onto your paper. If tracing, be sure to mark where the folds will need to go and add a tab so you can tape/glue them together. You will need two of them.
Step 3:Once you've traced/printed the pieces for your new shade, score them in the correct places to get a nice clean fold.
Step 4: Decorate your shade pieces as desired! I used my computer to decorate my template before I printed it out.
Step 5: Cut out the pieces for your new shade. I used a ruler, a cutting mat, and a rotary cutter to get a nice straight lines.
Step 6: Apply double sided tape or adhesive to the tabs of your shade pieces and remove or cut off any overhanging adhesive. Attach the ends to make a circular piece. Make sure the bottom of the shade pieces are flush so it fits nicely into the luminary base. Once they're secure, fold your shade along the lines you scored earlier.
Step 7: Use your fancy new luminary!
