Autumn Lantern - Thursday 30th October 2014

Good morning friends,

Today I would like to share another lantern with you...similar to the Halloween one, but this time with far brighter colours!

The basic lantern is from Clevercut and I painted it exactly the same as the Halloween one, using acrylic paint for the base coat and to rust it up. Although I held back a little on the 'rusting' for this one.

 I had the little pumpkins, burlap leaves and burlap ribbon on my fabric stash box, so it was just a case of decorating it.

Inside I painted a battery taillight with orange paint and added a few die cut leaves to decorate it.

 That's it for today...I had a lovely prize in the post yesterday, as I won a Spellbinders 'Jack O' Lantern' die in a draw that she held. I was so pleased to win it and I will have to see if I can squeeze one more Halloween make in before tomorrow!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Love and Hugs
