The green lantern

Today I have another craft that was a free file from Simply Crafty SVGs

I made the first one exactly as the file came but thought that the tealight looked a little lost in it.

Then I thought I would see if I could resize it and I liked this size better. I added the bit of greenery around the tealight and it keeps it from moving around in the lantern


Here's a comparison of the two sizes side by side.

After I took these pictures I decided to decorate the two smaller ones a bit more. Come back tomorrow to see what they look like now.

  1. how big are they, inches wise I mean. tell us tomorrow when you show us more. I really like them a lot. are they the size to hang on a tree or just sit. I like the two sizes side by side to just sit on a table.... tell us how you put them together. I am wondering how they are stuck together... these will make great gifts to take to work or give to friends.... are they paper? or plastic? I have so many questions

  2. Like Sandra, I'd like to know more about these. They are really cute and you did right by resizing and adding greens

  3. How cute are they! Perfect for putting in a vignette with some little elves and pixies! I got a brand new tea light out last night and it wouldn't come on....ggggrrrrr! lol Hugs!

    1. Thanks. For a tree ornament I thought the larger one was a bit too big also

  5. Always trust your creative gut - definitely the smaller size fits the tea light and adding the "greens" was perfect. Looking forward to seeing the embellishments.

    1. Trusting my creative gut has led to some big messes in the past but it's always an adventure :)

  6. I LOVE this!!! So original and unique. And you were so right; the first one was too big. I don't know what you can do to improve it, so I am anxious to see!

    1. I didn't do much more to it just enough to dress it up

    1. It's not a huge difference in size but just enough
