I had so much fun last week adding art to my front porch that I decided to bring lanterns back to my back porch. Ten years ago, when we first moved into our house, we bought adorable little glass lanterns, which spent the next 60 days shattering on the concrete every time the wind blew. Ahhh. There was money well spent.
This week, I went out in search of lanterns that could take some abuse, and I found three on clearance at the hardware store.
When I went hunting for plastic (read: unbreakable) heads in my art room, I realized that the only thing to do was to make a set of Alice in Wonderland lanterns.
I am completely out of spray gesso – and for that matter, any local places to buy it – so I set to work with gesso and a brush.
You should do something artistic for house this weekend! Don’t you think?
