12 Days of Christmas - Snowflake Lanterns

Wednesday, December 21, 2011

Are you guys enjoying the party?!! We still have another awesome post to come and a linky party so stick around :)

Now to the lanterns... 

I wanted something wintery to light up my home and accentuate some of my Christmas decor. I had seen a few lanterns done with lace that I loved but I wanted to give something a little bit different a try.  That's when I came up with this.

First I went to Michael's in search of a perfect snowflake stencil and I came across this snowflake scrapbook paper. Perfect!! 

I taped it around the jar to get it to hold and then...

...out to the yard to spray paint in the cold!

...and Tada!

So SUPER simple! ...and pretty :)

They glow beautifully and after lighting them a few times, the stencil actually got even more pronounced.

Hope you enjoyed!! Stay tuned for one more awesome Christmas post and don't forget to link your holiday project to the 12 Days of Christmas Holiday Linky Party tomorrow!!

  10. what kind of candle did you use for inside the jar? tea-light candle or a votive candle?

  11. I love this. I love snow flakes and this is such a pretty way to bring them inside. Did you use just regular white spray paint? Thank you for sharing. :)
