Well done. Is that frosted acrylic, vellum or rice paper?

Looks really nice and gives a nice light too.

I didn’t have any rice paper, so I used coffee filters…lol

Parchment paper works well also, but not everyone has that in the kitchen…

I used a tea light to take the picture, but I didn’t leave it burning long. My plan is to find some battery operated tea lights and hot glue them in the base so they can be turned on from the bottom. ( I have a hole cut out to accommodate the tealight.

I sought out the cheapest copy paper I could find. 14 lb. it works great as a diffuser.
