DIY Lantern Ornaments

DIY Lantern Ornaments
        Hi friends it feels like I have been away from crafting and blogging since ages when actually it has been just a month....life had dealt quite a few blows on several fronts and I was mentally completely drained out.
      My creativity is at an all time low right now but I had to make my DT project for Maureen's Rudolph Day Challenge and so do forgive the simplicity of this project.

Foam Crafts
        I made Christmas Lanterns using the Tim Holtz Rustic Lanterns die using chipboard and glitter foam . The gorgeous magnolia is my favorite and was made using the Spellbinders Magnolia die.
Christmas Decoration
I used glitter foam as it gives so much dimension and is lightweight too.
DIY Christmas Lanterns
 Festive Christmas colors always cheer me up and making this project was actually quite therapeutic for me!! It is at times like these when one truly appreciates the difference a hobby can make to your life!
DIY Christmas Decorations
 The white lantern is very simple but I love the cute mushrooms and the way the golden light bulb look!
DIY Festive Decorations
 I made the bulb portion of the lanterns using shiny golden holographic paper I had picked up from my local stationary shop...it shimmers so prettily when light falls on it.
Easy Christmas Decoation
 The berries are pollen and the glitter foam pine leaves were cut using a Poppy Stamps die.
Handmade Festive Decorations
These lanterns would work as festive home decorations or tags or even as a card front!
I hope you like this simple idea.
Don't forget to participate in the Rudolph Day Challenge !
Supplies : Dies :  Sizzix Tim Holtz Rustic Lantern ,Poppy Stamps Pine Boughs , Spellbinders Magnolia , Cheery Lynn  Rose Leaf Strip

  1. These are simple? No, there're fabulous! You chose which mediums and embellishments go together which they all do brilliantly so these weren't five minute jobs. I love the glittery foam you've used on them and the cute embellishments especially the mushrooms, berries and the beautiful magnolia. So don't apologize as these are fantastic creations. I hope things going on in your life improve quickly. Sending you a big hug and a thank you for your comment on my blog, I'm glad I make you smile. Take care, Debra x

  2. I love these sweet lanterns! They ado not look easy at all. You have made a trio of beauties and I love the glittered look of them.
    These will definitely make great tags or card fronts, but I think they would be lovely hanging on a tree as well!

    Thanks for being on my design team, Sonia!

  33. Sweet friend, you are in my heart and I pray for all that has been going on in your life. I've crafted way less than ever this year also, but I am hopeful both of our lives will sparkle and shine once again soon. Your projects are stunning and complete perfection. The classic elegance needs nothing more than you've done, especially with all of that festive sparkle. :) These are stunning and something I would love to make for the upcoming season. Thank you for the inspiration, Sonia. Sending extra hugs your way.

    Hugs and blessings,
