Polkadoodles Altered Lantern


Hi All,

I am back with another make from Polkadoodles Create and Craft Show .. you can catch up here:

This is a little altered Lantern, I picked a few of them up in the Works last year for 80p .. it has a little battery tea light in there too ... so very cute. It was blue plastic ... I covered in Gesso .. then sanded back slightly and added some silver guilding wax. I used some coloured wire and beads and then wrapped it around the handle. I then printed and cut out loads of flowers from the foliage section of the Winnie in Winterland collection I then covered the whole thing in lots of chunky glitter for a little extra sparkle.

I would like to add this to the following challenges:

Crafting From The Heart - Anything Goes
Artistic Inspiration - Anything Goes
Shopping Our Stash - Light Up My Life
Lemon Shortbread - Anything Goes
Through The Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
Just Us Girls - Colour Challenge
Love to Create - Anything Mixed Media

Thanks For Looking

  1. Thanks for being numero-uno at Shopping Our Stash this week! Wow, such an awesome detailed project-- what could be better for the current challenge?

  2. Such a very pretty and feminine creation although sadly I don't think it's eligible for your challenge as we need to see stamping as the focal element, but thanks for sharing with us at Stamping Sensations.
