3M: Made By You - Party Lanterns
 
 

The project feature 3M

is back!

 

If you missed this feature at the beginning of the year.

Here’s a quick recap:

3M stands for

Made by Martha Stewart,

Made by Mollie Makes &  

Made by You.

The original plan with this feature was to try projects

from each of these great sources.

I managed to complete a project

from Martha Stewart & Mollie Makes, but I never tried one 

MADE by YOU.

 

That is until now,

thanks to Pinterest and Rebecca over at

Rebecca’s DIY,

 

the originator of this lovely

little project.

 Now I know

you are looking at these lanterns, & thinking

how nice

 they would be for a picnic/party/baby shower,

but I think the Christmas tree is

where they belong.

 

That’s right, the CHRISTMAS TREE.

Which is why I chose

to make my lanterns using shot glasses,

rather than the standard size

party cup.

Hmmm,

I am now sensing you are not convinced

by this idea.

Something about pastels

not being Christmassy

enough.

Okay,

here’s a quick recap about my new feature

Jul.Christmas.Noel

Sydney (Australia) gets super hot at Christmas.

I would like to be super cool this year.

Not Fonzie cool, but as in

 

‘I want to wear more than my bikini,

when I eat my turkey dinner’

kind of cool!

So I am making white & pastel Christmas decorations,

they’re cool, right?

 Anyways,

I have made some lanterns.

 

I haven’t written a tutorial for them because,

a) they are so easy to make  

 

Plastic cups 

Modge Podge type glue

Paint Brush or sponge

Fabric

Thin Card (to draw template on)

Lights (from the Dollar shop)

& something to punch a hole in the top of the cups

(I used a drill).

 

and 

b) Taylor has written a fantastic tutorial on her gorgeous blog

TAYLORMADE

(Check out the drilling photo!)

If you fancy making your party/Christmas special, 

why not try making your own lanterns?

 

 They really are easy!
