The project feature 3M
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
the originator of this lovely
Now I know
you are looking at these lanterns, & thinking
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
I am now sensing you are not convinced
by this idea.
Something about pastels
not being Christmassy
here’s a quick recap about my new feature
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?
I have made some lanterns.
I haven’t written a tutorial for them because,
a) they are so easy to make
Modge Podge type glue
Paint Brush or sponge
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).
b) Taylor has written a fantastic tutorial on her gorgeous blog
(Check out the drilling photo!)
If you fancy making your party/Christmas special,
why not try making your own lanterns?
They really are easy!
Have fun today!
