I shared some plates decorated for Christmas using paper napkins and glue.
These lanterns made from glass jars use the same basic technique to a different effect.
The outside of the jars have been coated with one layer of white napkin. Then a silhouette of ordinary black paper added over the top.
|In normal light, no candles.|
A bit of ribbon with festive Christmas bells for a bit of colour, pop in a tea light (theses have one of the small battery powered ones you can get with a flickering flame effect (much safer).
|Using the flash, candles lit.|
Theses pictures do not do justice to the effect theses simple decorations give.
