My idea for this lantern involved some twinkle lights a
and a pretty inside display on my bakers' rack.
I removed the candle and scrubbed it thoroughly...
then put a string of white Christmas lights inside.
This is NOT the look I was going for.
Even with glass marbles and beautiful sea glass filling up the bottom,
the string of lights just looks awkward and a bit dumb.
I can't change the look of the lights but I can change
how they look through the lantern glass.
I figured out how to frost the glass sides using crumpled up
wax paper from the Dollar Store.
I used Mod Podge to adhere each wax paper sheet on the glass.
The wax paper makes the glass look frosted and crackled.
I LOVE how soft the light is coming through the semi opaque glass.
Now the lights looks soft and glowing and this lantern is exactly
what I pictured for decor on my baker's rack.
It is just right to use as a night light and as a focal point
for each season's decor.
And here's the baker's rack all glammed up for last Christmas.
LOVE how that lantern accents the silver and blue perfectly!
