Make tissue paper lanterns


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.


Make a Candy Cactus!


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!
