Step by step Mother's day.

Happy Mother's Day!

Here is a lovely lantern for Mum, would you like to learn how to make one yourself? 
Easy, just follow the Step by Step below!

You will need:
  • Clean clear glass jar;
  • Paint;
  • Embellishments (we used some felt scraps and spare buttons);
  • A candle for Mum to light;
  • Safety scissors;
  • Glue (we used a quality glue stick);
  • Nice long brush;
  • Lots of imagination!
What to do:

  1. Paint the jar from the inside, make sure you don;t cover the jar with paint as you will need to see through to make the lantern work properly;
  2. Paint the outside top of the jar using another color to give it a nice effect;
  3. While the paint is drying cut shapes and letter, whatever you like;
  4. Once you have all your shapes and embellishments ready glue them outside the jar ( a good tip: to prevent material waste always draw your creations on scrap paper to use as a stencil before you cut the felt!);
  5. Make a beautiful bow using anything you can find at home: natural fiber, string, cotton, ribbon etc.
  6. Place an unlighted candle inside, make a lovely card and give it to Mum, she will LOVE IT!
Have a wonderful Mother's Day everyone!
