These beautiful beeswax lanterns look lovely and are very easy to make.
Their soft glow makes every day feel special and makes our home feel extra cozy on a rainy Autumn day.
You will need:
Beeswax or normal wax / old candles
Fill your balloons with water.
The size of your balloon will determine the size of your votive.
Melt your wax using the double boiler method. (One pot inside the other.)
When your wax is fully melted let it cool for about twenty seconds.
Slowly dip your balloon into the wax and spin it around gently.
Take it out, count to three and repeat about ten times.
Let your wax covered balloon cool down on a wooden surface or baking paper.
When your wax has cooled down cut a hole into the top of the balloon using scissors.
Remove the empty balloon from your lantern.
You can add details like pressed leaves or flowers, or tissue paper shapes!
Put a tealight inside and enjoy the soft glow.
Have fun making these, I think we will be making some as presents for friends this Christmas!
Wishing you a beautiful day,
ps// If you make any, why not post them in the Here We Are Together Flickr Group?
