Fairy Lantern

Just a quick post today to show this pretty little fairy lantern. It's loaded with detail, so apologies for the picture overload.


I know that there are several versions of this type of lantern knocking around the internet. However, mine is super quick and super simple and avoids all that faffing around with glue and tissue paper. It also avoids the hit and miss painting on glass process!


Want to know more? Check out the instructions below.


  1. Cover a jar with Xcut adhesive vellum.
  2. Dab Blanc Artiste Acrylic Paint onto the remaining glass areas of the jar. Paint the lid with Metallic Gold Artiste Acrylic Paint.
  3.   Using black card, die cut a fairy and a selection of flowers from the Xcut Meadow Flowers die set.
  4. Glue the fairy and some flowers to the inside of the jar.
  5. Brush Craft Planet PVA glue onto the painted areas of the jar and allow it to dribble in places. Sprinkle sparingly with Papermania Fine Iridescent Glitter.
  6. Punch a selection of flowers, butterflies and leaves from using Xcut punches and dies.
  7. Create a handle from docrafts Craft Wire, attach to the jar using Stick Hot Glue.
  8. Place the lid onto the jar and embellish with a craft wire stems, butterflies and a selection of the foliage, ensure that nothing is obstructing the movement of the lid.
  9. Thread Papermania Alphabet Charms onto twine to create the hanging WISH ornament.
  10. To finish, place a battery operated tealight inside the jar and replace the lid. 
I hope you like my take on the captured fairy lantern?


Thanks for stopping by today.
