From the ModCloth
look book to your summer table, here's how to make lanterns
When we spotted the colorful glass candleholders in the ModCloth
catalog, we immediately coveted them (along with about 20 dresses). So we were thrilled when we saw that the purveyor-of-all-things-cute offered a tutorial on how to make lanterns
using little more than glass jars and tissue paper.
You'll start by raiding the recycle bin for a few glass jars. Any size will do, but I find that it's best to start with a smaller jar until you get the hang of the technique. Next, paint on a coat of white and then layer on bits of colored tissue paper. Let dry completely before dropping in a small votive candle. Simple, right?
