If you're using these indoors - the paper liners are fine. However, outdoor use won't stand up to rain - so you'll have to slip them off when you're through. Camilla has never had a problem – but please use caution and do not leave lights on when not present. Also – make sure paper liners do not directly touch bulb. This project is not meant for long term use. LED lights would be optimal to use since they do not get hot.

Dollar Day Creation~Cupcake Liner Lights
I love these cupcake liners....don't they look like mini lampshades!! Too cute! I found these thrifty beauties at Family Chic done by the talented Camilla. There are so many cupcake parties going around...this would be a great decor addition to that theme or would look great at any party. I haven't seen cupcake liners at Dollar Tree but you can find liners at various store $ bins. You can get these cupcake liners at IKEA 65 liners for .99 cents. I love them! I know, IKEA isn't everywhere.....we have one....yippee!! Using an exacto knife, make a cross cut in the bottom of the liner. Remove bulb from socket - slip on liner and replace bulb.
