It's Friday and for us here in Canada, it means enjoying a long weekend as we celebrate Victoria Day (Queen Victoria's birthday).
I look forward to weekends at the cottage and this year I'm especially looking forward to visiting the quaint antique shops, where you find very unique items...
It was at one of these shops that I saw this lantern last year and subsequently showed you how to make your own here
But this year, I wanted to change it up...
And this is how I did it....
White spray paint or paint
Hot glue gun
2. Measure around jar or vase and cut to size (leave approx 1" extra at the top)
3. Stencil or paint design onto burlap and allow to dry
4. Wrap burlap around vase and secure with hot glue
5. Wrap a piece of thick rope around bottom of vase
6. Using this tutorial, tie a fishnet around vase
7. Instead of tying the top, I tucked the burlap and the net into the vase and secured it with glue
8. To make the handle: Use a piece of jute to tie some of the thick rope onto the net, secure with glue for extra stability and repeat on the other side
I'm sorry I didn't complete a picture tutorial, but I'm hopeful looking at the final product and following the instructions will enable you to add this sweet little beachy lantern to your decor.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to let me know and I'll do my best to help you out...:)
You can see a similar picture on this place mat I painted of the same little crab. I wouldn't recommend using spray paint on this one as it not food safe.
But...it makes me want to eat lobster...yumm
Have a beautiful day!
