I have had this charming little lantern for several years, but when it got knocked from a shelf, and one of the panels of glass broke, I didn't have the heart to throw it out.
Now I am so glad that I didn't. I saw it on the shelf where its been sitting, since it was broken two years ago, and the thought of putting in a picture in the place of the broken panel hit me. I found this charmer on Graphics Fairy, of course, and printed it off on regular printer paper. I taped it around the edges inside the open frame.
The effect of the candle burning is the most effective, shown above, when the light is out, but to the right you can see it is still charming and mystical looking when the light is on. Now I am thinking of finding a cool witch picture and redoing it for October. What a spooky looking center piece for a Halloween dinner eaten by candle light!!
But for now the lantern can come out of hiding and sit on my dresser, looking cute, even when its not lit. Yep, just one more example of up cycling and saving our land fills!
