Last year I made my mom a candle lantern for christmas with flowers around it. It turned out ok, but I wasnt thrilled with it. Yesterday as I was trying to clean my room I can across another vase I had bought to make a lantern out of. So I decided that I would do the project right away.
This was a pretty easy project.
First I took my vase, mod podge and tissue paper and began adding color tissue paper as the bottom layer of this lantern.
Then for my second layer I added dried flowers which I had picked from the neighborhood and left in a book for many months.
My last layer was another layer of light tissue paper to help keep the flowers on better.
Its not the best thing ever made. And I think that the layering of tissue make the flowers harder to see, but when the candle is lit it is much more pretty.
