Flower Lantern

Linterna de Flores

For this cool lantern you will need :
Empty Jar
Tissue Paper
Glue mix with water (half/half)
A flower and some leafs

Para esta maravillosa linterna necesitarás:
Un embase de vidrio
Papel de seda
La mezcla de pegamento con agua (medio / medio)
Una flor y algunas hojas

We save glass jars (I have lots of them)I feel bad wasting such a great material.We started adding some of the mix of glue and water to the jar using my hands, then add the tissue paper.

Ahorramos frascos de vidrio (tengo un montón de ellos) me siento mal hechando gran material como este a la basura.Empezamos a agregar la mezcla de cola y agua al frasco de vidrio usando mis manos, a continuación añadir el papel de seda.

Then we added the leafs and the flower

Luego añadimos las hojas y la flor

Then let it dry over night...and your lantern will be ready.

Luego deje que se seque durante la noche ... y tu linterna estará lista.

I use some flameless candles..always go for the safe way!!

Puedo utilizar algunas velas sin llama(son pequenas velas a bateria) .. siempre van de la manera más segura!

Beautiful things made from simple stuff!!

Hermosas cosas hechas de materiales simples!

Please enjoy your weekend getting close to nature, thanks.
Por favor, disfrute su fin de semana, disfrute a la naturaleza, gracias.

So beautiful. I'm a bit of a lantern geek. I love them all so will have to try this out along with the yarn lantern. It will look great on the nature table.
Thanks for your comment on my new blog. Yes you really need to get a break sometime! It does a world of good.
