We got invited to a wedding this summer. I was SO excited to go because that means 1. I get to make something for a gift, and 2. I can watch my son dance all crazy at the reception. Oh, and of course 3. To witness a beautiful new beginning for the lovely couple. ;)
I spied lanterns on clearance at Target, which I was envious of in the first place. We don't have a a real great outdoor space to decorate, but lots of my friends and family do...so I like doing things like this.
I smoothed them on so there were no bubbles, and applied Armour Etch to the parts I wanted to etch. I did one panel at a time, and laid the lantern flat otherwise the etching cream would drip down and that would NOT be good.
The side and back panel have dandelions, and they are scaled a little bit larger than the front. The front has the couple's names and their wedding date. I sneakily added it to the table they had decorated at the reception with their guest book and other stuff; it took them awhile to figure out who it was from. LOL
