Good morning to you all 
we have a lovely day here today 

I have been playing with some lovely lanterns 

Here is what I did to the lanterns 

I used acrylic paints to paint the lantern after I followed the easy to put together instructions 
I have added some fancy sequins from my stash   

I have used a  fancy sticky flower strip from my stash to decorate around the middle  
I have used rainbow gems to decorate 
and a silk flower and some ribbon 

I have used mosaic tiles don't forget to take the front plastic covering off the tiles as well as the sticky bit 
I have used black cord from my stash  

I have coloured the lantern with promarker from my stash 
 I have used some sequins around the top 
I have added a silk flower 
I have added some beads to the bottom from my stash 

I have enjoyed doing these projects 
Thanks for taking the time to look  
happy crafting to you all
