Here is the awesome Vlog!
There is something that is just irresistible about Cocktail Umbrellas. They're tiny, adorable, bright and even functional! So, of course today when I saw a paper lantern on clearance at Michaels, I couldn't resist. After an additional trip to the party store to purchase the Cocktail Umbrellas, I jumped right in the project.
Here are my supplies
Here is my lantern after gluing all of the Cocktail umbrellas on. Isn't it fun?
In order to cover the whole lantern I had to overlap the umbrellas and covered up part of the opening.
Just as she said in the Video, it was very easy to trim the umbrellas around the opening.
Here it is!
Hanging in my dining room and bringing a smile to my heart.
Here are the link parties that I frequently join. I may not add every project to every party, but all are worthy of noting each time to get the word out about them.
