Now that the chilly weather is behind us I have started thinking only of summer crafts – I made these lanterns with the idea that they could be hung outside on warm summer nights or to swing in the breeze of an open window. I picked my favorite tissue – Circle Mesh Gold for these to give them a rustic but elegant look – perfect for an outdoor wedding or a BBQ!
I used white glue to attach the tissue to the jars, but Mod Podge would work really well too. To make the loops for hanging them I used a medium gauge craft wire and pliers, you have to make sure that the wire around the rim of the jar is tight so that it can support the hanging weight of the jar. How lovely would these look with a lacy Watermark Tissue or with the light shining through a Katazome print!?
