Luau Day 19- Christmas time tropical style! Lanterns


With the upcoming holiday's coming, now is the time to start planning those parties. In the tropics there probably is not much snow unless it is high in the mountains. So how do they celebrate Christmas, do they sing Christmas carols, do they have a Santa Claus? I say yes! So the rest of this luau is all about Christmas in the tropics. Maybe you are planning a tropical Christmas vacation and would like some inspiration.
When people go caroling they usually have some kind of light to light their way. Here are a few lanterns that could do this and one or all could be just for decorations.
 This lantern I used a couple of battery operated tea lights inside. This would be beautiful on a mantle or sleigh. If you wanted to, you could also add some potpourri to it for some added holiday scents to fill the air. It has a little lid to put on it also.

Embellish it with rhinestones and die cuts.

 This is a Chinese lantern. It only uses 5 pieces of 3 x 6 dsp and then it is stapled all together. I covered the staples on the top and bottom with the hibiscus flowers.

 Here is a closeup of the tassel. Can you see it is made from the Tropical Chic DSP? I added some beads from my stash. Isn't it just lovely?

This lantern is made using the envelope punch board. This will hold one tea light. If you wanted to you could add some window sheet and then you could fill it with candy and give as a gift. The bows are made from the left over ovals I had cut out. With this project I have very little waste. If you would like to see how this is made, head on over to Maymay made it on you tube.

Product List
Today's prize is a package of the mini dimensionals.
What is your favorite food or drink you love to have during the holiday's?
Mine is the holiday punch, it is always so delicious!
