Pink Butterfly and Flower Paper Lantern

I know, I know, it's been way too long since my last post :( Hopefully this awesome new lantern will make up for some of the delay... I think it turned out fantastic! Hope you enjoy the pics and feel free to visit my Etsy shop HERE if you want one for yourself.


This was a special request lantern and I think it is my new favorite! I made the turquoise colored one (see the turquoise version here) first and then had a special order for an orange one (see the orange version here) but this pink one is by far the prettiest. I am so thrilled with how it turned out! And on a side note the pictures of this lantern are probably the best I've taken yet because of my beautiful snowball bush in the background with its fall leaves. I just love fall!!!

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not

White and Light Pink Flower Paper Lantern

Flower paper lanterns are my favorite but also one of my hardest lanterns to make. However, it's totally worth it because the end result is stunning! This one is especially beautiful because it is layered with soft white flowers and just a hint of light pink in the center.

Hockey Sticks Paper Lanterns

I toyed around with several ideas for how to make a hockey lantern and this is what I came up with. A silhouette of hockey sticks and a hockey puck made out of felt. This lantern could also be done with white felt on a black lantern which I personally think would look best but this is what I had on hand to try out the first one. I <3 hockey!

Ribbon Paper Lantern

Black and Light Pink Ribbon Paper Lantern

I love black and light pink so I created this as part of my daughter's nursery and made it the low light lamp to use for the late night diaper changes. She loves her lanterns and has to tell them goodnight before I put her in bed every night.


 This is one of my favorite sayings that I stenciled on her wall with a paint pen and a projectore:

"With a Butterfly Kiss & a Ladybug Hug,
Sleep tight little one, like a 
Bug in a Rug"

Orange Dreamsicle

  Orange Butterfly Paper Lantern

Have you ever had a project or idea that you just can't picture in your mind? This was one of those for me. I just could not picture this looking good but after they were done the orange is really pretty! The paper butterflies and flowers had multiple shades of orange that looked so nice together when it was done. The felt had such a rich color to it that it almost seemed to change colors in different light and angles. These paired with the white lantern make the perfect orange accent to any room.

Chevron Stripes

Chevron Striped Paper Lantern

This Chevron stripe grey and blue paper lantern was my latest lantern creation inspired by a customer request and it turned out pretty awesome, if I do say so myself! It was paired with another grey and black striped lantern (see pics below). It has been much too long since my last post, so with the holidays behind us, I can now play catch up on my blog!


Grey lantern and black stripes made a nice compliment to the chevron stripe lantern. Simple yet sophisticated.

This crazy striped lantern was more of an experiment than anything. Some thing things look better in my head than in reality! I am still on the fence with this one but I think it goes nicely in this grouping. My husband was kind enough to tell me he didn't like it at all! (Gee thanks, don't hold back on account of my feelings or anything! :) Hmmmm we'll have to see if I get any interest in it at all, maybe it will go into the craft project gone wrong pile after all....
