Hi all. Still in festive mood, as you've probably noticed. Got some outstanding stuff to show, which I didn't manage to do so before Christmas. A while ago I had a great idea to make my own festive lanterns with a sort of Nordic look so I started turning a few black metal-framed lanterns (from Poundworld!!) into white festive Scandinavian tealight holders. They had been sprayed with a white gloss first, dried up then I removed all the glass panes and painted all sorts of Christmassy motifs on each one. I used only white outliner and red glass paint. Motifs were kept simple as possible and they vary - from snowflakes, Scandinavian stars, reindeers to stockings, gloves and folky hearts etc.
And this is what the individual motifs looks like:
And this is when they are lit, with tealights inside...
Finally I can enjoy my long-awaited completed project! Wish it was Christmas again!
Sunday night and it's time for the 1st Hand-made Monday this year. Come on, join in and have fun!
