Christmas-themed English Lanterns — Designer: Ann Bernklau

Tips:

  • To create realistic looking icicles, apply a line of Liquid Pearls to the lantern and drag a craft pick or toothpick through it while still wet.
  • You can mix and match the different topper styles with the two different lantern styles. Topper A also has two different handle options.
  • Play around with different embellishments: Liquid Pearls, crystals, and Stickles all work well.
  • Allow a couple hours for the Liquid Pearls and Stickles to dry.
