See......With the help of Alteredpages.com my lantern IS nimble in that one month it will help usher in Fall. The next month (with a few added spooky bits) it is ready for Halloween. And, the month after that it will work perfectly for Thanksgiving.
Here is how...
Start with amazing Fall collage images found Here and Here. These are the two that I used, but there are many more to choose from so take a look around the Fall category found Here. I ordered digital collage sheets and printed them on velum. If you don't have vellum, Altered Pages can print for you on vellum (and other card stock options) and ship them out right away.
Next, tear up tons of vintage text pages, found Here.
Then, grab a cute glass vase that you have lying around. I picked this one up long ago from the dollar store. Begin applying collage images first. I used Aleene's Tacky Glue for this.
Followed by the torn vintage text pages.
Finally, with a bit of hot glue apply a bit of Spanish moss at the base and raffia to the top. So pretty and it was fairly quick to make.
The longest part of this project was the fussy cutting, but with my AMAZING Kai Scissors that was a breeze. I think I need to get busy making a couple more of these.
What a great hostess gift.
Thanks for joining me today. I hope you were inspired to get crafting for Fall. Head over to Alteredpages.com for more inspiration and all the supplies you will need to get a head start on the season.
