Today the Nice to Meet You gang are linking up again, today our topic is: Favourite things you have made.
Its hard to choose a favourite, but I really like how this project turned out. Sometimes they don't quite work like you have planned. I wanted a lantern or mobile to hang under the mosquito net over Little Miss J's cot. Something to move softly and catch her eye as she drifted to sleep. And I didn't want to spend a fortune. And I was heavily pregnant with limited creative energy.
To make: One sunshine yellow paper lantern, two packets of gorgeous acetate butterflies, some silver jewellery wire, a glue gun, and about an hour of playing with different placements and I was done.
Some butterflies are glued directly to the lantern, some are glued to strands of wire so they hover away from the paper. To finish off I hung a lavender crystal through the lantern which catches the afternoon sunlight, reflecting rainbows around the room.
Little Miss J has always loved it. As I put her to bed I shake the net gently, the butterfly's flutter gently, and Little Miss J drifts off to sleep.
