This time of year we light loads of candles. Long candles, short candles, colorful and white. Lanterns made of a glass jars are fun and easy to make. Today we dress our glass jars in tissue paper. It is not difficult, but takes a little patience. Tissue paper is thin and breaks easily, but the lantern gives off a wonderful glow just because paper is so delicate.
First of all – thank you so much for all your congratulations on our blog anniversary last week! You are amazing followers and we look forward to share many more creative years with you. Now we’ll show you how we made our Marquee letters from last week’s post.
One of my favorit projects from our book Pyssla med mig is the Candy Cactus. Helena from Craft and Creativity and her daughter brought one over for Freja a while ago and it was a success. I used to make these when I was a kid, but had forgotten how fun they were to make – and give. These two are for Freja’s teachers. They go really well in our new watermelon pots, don’t you think!
