It’s a grey, rainy day here in southern France – disappointing as today is a public holiday.
I thought some bright, cheery colour would help the situation so here is a mini-tutorial for another lantern makeover I completed the other week.
This lantern came from Castorama (which I think is only in Europe), but you could easily adapt any rice paper lantern to the task.
My lantern was already half green (full green would make the room look really weird at night), but it needed a little something extra, I thought. Wary of how long the bunting lantern took me I was keen for something more instantly gratifying this time round, so paper it had to be.
I went with a starburst pattern; heavy at the bottom and sparser at the top. Kind of like the little suckers were fleeing the lantern. I just used a dab of craft glue to stick them on.
Or maybe the red?
Here it is back up on the ceiling.
Perhaps not as flash as the bunting one, but so much quicker and easier to make. And with all the different paper punches out there, you could easily create a masterpiece.
Hope your week’s started off well, and not as wet as ours. I’ll be back a little later today with a little giveaway. Nothing earth shattering, but hopefully inspirational for someone!
