When we did our Halloween lanterns we got a whole bunch of cover over. As always when it gets things over itch in your fingers for us to find something to do with them. But what do you do with a lid? This time, it was small barrels to block light.
You need leftover metal lid, acrylic paint, paint brush, glue and fine ribbon and lace.
1. Begin by painting the lids with acrylic paint. Our cap called a few coats of paint before they became who we wanted them.
2nd Let the covers dry properly and decorate them with fancy ribbon or other fancy you have at home. As you can see, I let Freya use glue gun. I'll always be around when the glue gun is running, in case she would burn herself, but she has proved to be careful. Do you have minor children, or children who are not accustomed to hot glue gun, so it is of course good to use plain craft glue.
3rd We finished with to bust a little sequin bottom. Just be sure that what is on the bottom must be flat, so that the lights are not unstable. When we were ready!
Four boring leftover caps are now four nice little barrels to block light.
When we did our Halloween lanterns we've got a whole bunch of lids leftover. We do not like leftover things - we had to find something to do with them. But what do you do with the lids? Candle plates, of course!
You need leftover metal lids, hobby paint, brush, glue and fine ribbons and lace.
1. Begin by painting the lids with hobby paint. We had to add a couple of layers of paint before our lids looked the way we wanted.
2nd Let the lids dry thoroughly and then decorate them with beautiful ribbons or lace. As you can see, I let Freya use the glue gun. I am always nearby When glue gun is in use, in case she would burn herself, but she has Proved to be careful. Do you have small children, or children who are not accustomed glue guns, use plain craft glue.
3rd We attached a little sequin on the bottom of the lid. Make sure the ice sequins glued flat to the bottom or the candle will be unstable. Done!
Four boring leftover lids are now four tiny candle plates for our block lights.
