Christmas Lantern Project

Lantern with Tea Light
Howdy Crafters!
After I finished the Halloween Lantern I created, click HERE, I just had to make another lantern with a Christmas Theme. 
This one took me a bit longer since I am using a ton of dies. I also decided to embellish the window front sections before assembling the two base pieces together. For me, it worked out lovely to get all of the embellishments on first, then assemble the lantern. The last portion of this lantern to embellish was the top of the lantern after assembly.  As you can see in the finished photo, I added a hanging cord. 
It really is worth your time and effort to create one of these lovely lanterns. I hope you will give it a try. See You Tube link below in Recipe.  I am presently working on a Fall lantern - I am addicted!!
Thanks for dropping by today and have a blessed week! ~ Gail ~
